Today was the Brooklyn Food Conference in Park Slope (http://brooklynfoodconference.org). It was quite a busy event, with a full booklet of all the workshops, talks, demonstrations, and vendors involved. I want to write in more detail about it, but it'll have to be at another point, cause I'm exhausted from the day. Next year, hopefully I'll hear about it ahead of time, and get a chance to volunteer.
Dinner - Farfalle with pesto and oven-roasted tomatoes;
3 oatmeal-raisen cookies and some grapes.
Recently read - lots and lots of literature I picked up from all the vendors at the conference.
Moral of the Story - There's a lot more than meets the eye (or that I've noticed) going on in local farming in Brooklyn.
