An update on Saving Seeds

Right now the staff and dedicated volunteers of NFI are gearing up for Saving Seeds! With the event two days away, we’re all a-twitter with excitement around what we know will be an inspiring and fun evening.

We can’t deny it – one of the most exciting parts of planning this event has definitely been compiling the menu of local and season hors d’oeuvres. We’ve been gleaning donations from local farmers, harvesting our own farms and gardens, and scouring our favorite cookbooks and websites. Our apartments are full of crates of peaches, our fridges stuffed to the brim with yellow squash. We’ve just finalized the menu, and we want to give you a little preview of the savory treats you’ll enjoy at Saving Seeds:

Tomato-cucumber gazpatcho

Tzatziki dipping sauce

Frittata with chard and herbs


Summer Succotash with pepper, corn, squash, and herbs

Green salad with tomatoes and nectarines

Cantaloupe salad with cucumber, mint, and feta cheese

Stuffed pattypan squash with parmesan cheese and herbs

Peach cobbler

In case that isn’t enough for you, did we mention there will also be a Squeeze-Your-Own-Lemonade stand? We’ll have lemons, sugar, and herbs on hand for you to make it just how you like it, or to try a new twist. We hope you’re as excited as we are, and we look forward to seeing you there!
