Farm to Table Event, Support Local Growers

 

Perry, Georgia - Who grew the food on your dinner table? Diners at the second Farm 2 Table Event will know the answer to that question as they enjoy an eight course feast prepared with locally grown and raised food, each course perfectly paired with a fine wine. Proceeds from the dinner benefit local food projects throughout Houston County.

"Know your farmer, know your food," said Volunteer Market Organizer Jodi Daley, who encourages consumers to "keep the money spent on produce in the local economy.

Hosted by the International City Farmers Market, the community is invited to savor the succulent dishes prepared by Megan Wilson, owner of the Perfect Pear, while conversing with the very person who toiled to raise produce served that evening and learning about various initiatives in the works to raise awareness about the benefits of "eating local."

"Eating local benefits the local economy by keeping our dollars at home," Daley said. "The food tastes better and this encourages healthy eating that, in turn, improves the overall health of our community members."

Upcoming projects include three new community gardens in Houston County. NAMI Interactive Gardens is building demonstration gardens to teach folks how to grow their own veggies. Field of Dreams is on the way; we are just about done building all the raised beds. The Warner Robins Housing Authority is building a garden for its senior residents. And the Farm 2 Table proceeds will do much to further these endeavors.
