Please let me know if you do have a get together. I'll drive up from Albany to meet everyone!

Jill Hurst-Wahl

Now that we've met, I think we'll run into each other all the time. I actually passed you today on Catherine St!

I'd enjoy meeting at a potluck or at the NYWCC. Meeting at the NYWCC means we could just come and not worry about preparing anything. And there is good food in that area.

BTW had sushi downtown yesterday at Sakana-Ya Sushi Bar. Excellent! (And in case you hadn't figured it out, I love sushi!)

Jennifer I thought you might want to post this, it's an invite we got from Sustainable Table and their eat well tour finaly dinner. We just attended the event here in KC and it was awesome. If we were in Syracuse alreayd we would be attending this too. Maybe a group could get together and make the drive, it would be well worh it.

Calling all foodies and farmers! (Please distribute widely!)

Farm Aid is joining Sustainable Table for the Eat Well Guided Tour of America's grand finale event at Greig Farm in the Hudson Valley. Join us for an unforgettable night under the stars: a gathering of upstate New York's local farmers, artisans, and musicians. Celebrate the harvest and enjoy a gourmet BBQ with homegrown ingredients and local brews, art installations, and live music.

Highlights include:

* Berkshire pork, heirloom vegetables, and local cheeses
* Wilfredo Morel's Steel Imaginations exhibit
* World renowned chef Laura Pensiero
* Video clips from the Eat Well Guide Tour of America

Everyone is invited and it's only 90 minutes from New York City! Can't make it? Join in the action via our LIVE WEBCAST, featuring on-the-ground interviews with chef Laura Pensiero, Farm Aid representatives, Food & Water Watch's Patty Lovera, and Sustainable Table's Diane Hatz.

Tickets are $20 but it's free for all farmers. And bringing a homemade pie made from sustainable local ingredients also gets you in for free. All pies will be entered into a tasting contest -- the winner gets 2 tickets to the Farm Aid concert on September 9th!
