A Special Cookbook, a Special Brentwood Farm
Come out to Brentwood to meet the First Generation Farmers. Their unique nonprofit community farm has a mission of facilitating food access within the local community, while also “conserving natural resources, providing public education, access to open space, and promoting beginning farmers, ranchers, and agripreneurs.”
This event is centered around a visit by author Mi Ae Lipe, whose big, beautiful Bounty from the Box cookbook is an excellent guide to getting the most out of your community-supported agriculture subscription (CSA veggie box). In addition to recipes (with serving suggestions and nutritional info), the book profiles CSA farms like this one, which are making change around agriculture in their local communities. Get your book signed and take a tour of the farm.
Following the afternoon event and tour, First Generation Farmers is holding a women’s social to launch their FGF Women’s Group. This event will feature a talk by Mi Ae Lipe and Bounty from the Box recipes prepared by Barbara Cecchini. Please RSVP for the women’s social to Alli Cecchini at 925.331.7607 or register here.
