What's cooking: dinners that build community

Over the next year, North Country Public Radio is collecting stories about food along with photos and recipes for our website, and possible inclusion in a food book. For more than nine years, a group of neighbors in Potsdam has shared in the preparation of weekly family meals.

Our occasional series on growing, cooking and eating locally, "Local Flavor", continues as Todd Moe heads into the kitchen for dinner served families-style.  Go to full article
CSA farmer Bob Washo plants a crop of fall spinach

It's still harvest season and a time when pantries and root cellars are restocked with canned garden bounty, everything from applesauce to pickled zucchini. And it's a busy time on Community-supported Agriculture, or CSA farms across the region. CSAs allow consumers to buy a share of a farm's output, sharing the rewards and risks of the harvest. A St. Lawrence County farm is trying an experiment: members not only receive weekly shares of produce, but are also expected to help run the farm. Together they're learning to till the soil, raise livestock and preserve the fall harvest. It's part of a larger goal where "shareholder" has a new meaning. In this first segment, of an occasional series on growing, cooking and eating locally, Todd Moe visits a farm built more on enthusiasm, and less on profit.  Go to full article

What began as a composting program ten years ago has grown into a school-wide project that teaches youngsters the importance of healthy eating, gardening skills and the environment. Julie Holbrook, cafeteria manager at Keene Central School, and some of her students gave Todd Moe a garden tour last Friday. It was warm and sunny, and they started at the tomato patch.  Go to full article
