Perhaps asking you to leave campus to attend events was crossing the line. Maybe the arts exhibitions were not worth the T-ride. So we have another event for you, one that’s right here on campus and involves free food—locally grown, organic free food!

Today at 4 p.m., all community members are invited to attend a live cooking demonstration by Director of Culinary Operations, Martin T. Breslin, who will use ingredients from the Community Garden itself.

If you haven’t noticed, the Community Garden has been around in front of Lowell House since the spring and, according to summer intern Emily E. Osborne '12, it aims to increase awareness of food issues and provide an anchor point where people can link food and the realities of its production, even in an urban environment like Cambridge.

“People should come to see the Garden up close if they haven’t before, to show support for the Garden and its mission, to enjoy the relaxing setting, to share their thoughts on the garden specifically and sustainability or food-related issues in general and maybe even to learn something new!” Osborne said.

The Garden has been growing lettuce, onions, peppers, radishes, tomatoes, kale, eggplants, etc…an exhaustive ingredient list for some delicious recipes. If you want to find out what’s on the menu, go to the community garden today between 4-6 p.m.
