In typical Sweetwater style, we had an enthusiastic showing of support at our 20th Anniversary Farm to Fork Celebration on Sunday night from a wide variety of people including our community members and family, supporters, board members and farmers. Everyone enjoyed some of the best local food in Florida! A very special thank you to our event sponsor and creator of the fantastic meal, Boca Hyde Park. Thanks also to the Boca/Samba Room staff, the band Rayzilla’s Dreamboat, Mary Mulhern, and Andrea Hildebran-Smith of Green Florida – we could not have done it without you! We raised close to $10,000 at the event, the majority of which will be used to continue work on our barn at The Children’s Home farming location. Thank you to all of our attendees and our very generous sponsors!!
For our veggie lovers – this week we’ll be harvesting more delicious beets for the share! The varieties we have growing in the fields are Red Ace and Chioggia Guardsmark. Red Ace beets are a more traditional deep red beet, while the Chioggias are a candy-striped beet with alternating colors of red and white. Both varieties are great roasted or prepared in salads and don’t forgot the greens are edible too!
Happy Valentine’s Day you Organic Veggie Eaters, You! We love you for ever and ever and ever!
