Harvest potluck supper Oct. 6 in Dexter
DEXTER — Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) is sponsoring a harvest potluck supper on Friday, Oct. 6 at the Unitarian Universalist Church (11 Church Street across from the Abbott Memorial Library).
Everyone in the community is invited to bring a dish of their favorite harvest-season food to share with others, celebrating the bounty of the region’s good soil, water, and air. Casseroles, breads, beverages, desserts, salads, side dishes will be among the meal items — the more local and whole and organic the better.
For many decades the area’s food production (and health) has declined as residents have become more and more dependent on imported and processed foods. But recent catastrophic weather events, an uncertain economy, and rising prices of fuel reinforce the need to turn that dependence around by growing more food locally.
The meal will begin promptly at 6 p.m. and at 8 p.m. it will end. Come a little earlier to warm something up in the church’s ovens. Volunteers to help set up and take down tables and chairs would also be greatly appreciated.
DDATT’s mission is to help the area reduce the use of fossil fuels and create a more stable rural economy by becoming producers instead of consumers. For more information on DDATT and future events, email email@example.com to get on news list or call 277-4221 or 924-3836.
