From chilly mornings tending seedlings in the greenhouse, through the seemingly endless summer heatwave, and into a gorgeous autumn, it is now time to celebrate the successful completion of New Roots 2011 CSA! What better way to celebrate a successful season of growing food and sharing community than by sharing a meal with those who make it possible?!

The evening began with appetizers prepared by our farmers, including delicious sambusas and a pumpkin & chicken curry (which was just one of many dishes featuring Burmese pumpkins--it must be that season!). Guests arriving could peruse the silent auction offerings, which consisted of some beautiful framed photos, newly-published cookbooks, and other New Roots gear. All items were taken home by satisfied bidders! Special thanks to all who donated. :)
We then progressed to the seated dinner portion of the evening, which featured many exciting and colorful tastes! Fud chef Heidi's raw food "rainbow course" was a hit, followed by a hearty pumpkin curry prepared by chef Todd Schulte of Genessee Royale. Finally we enjoyed a pumpkin dessert made by the talented chefs at The Farmhouse.
All in all it was a successful event, and we were glad to share a bit of the farm's bounty with new and old friends.
