WEEKLY RECIPE INSPIRATION

Roasted root vegetable pasta with kale pesto

root vegetable pasta

With spring upon us, farmers markets will start making space for early-season asparagus and ramps any minute. But, after the whole winter in the ground to get sweet, this is actually the best time of year to enjoy root vegetables. Mix yours with pasta and add some bright, fresh pesto with this lovely dish. Get the recipe.

WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES

Hi members,

Our penultimate pick-up is tomorrow and we are so excited to say that we are ALL SET on volunteers! Thanks for being great :)

As our cozy, intimate winter season starts to wind down, we have our sights set on the summer. There are a number of updates, but we'll be brief:

Potluck party: First things first - we'll be having a shindig to celebrate a successful winter season and to welcome new people to the CSA for summer. Beer and wine will be flowing, and we'll have chef demonstrations by last year's Smackdown winners and core committee members, plus a short info session for new people interested in signing up. Bring yourself, a friend who wants to learn more, and even a dish if you're feeling inspired (though it's not necessary).

  • Tuesday, May 9th, 6:30-8pm (during pick-up)
  • St Marks Church

Summer/fall CSA sign-up: Registration is still open for summer, including fruit, meat and dairy add-ons. Sign up now! The deadline is April 30 (though if new people want to sign up at the potluck, they will still be able to).

Opportunity to get more involved: A number of core members will be out for summer, and we're looking for more volunteers to take on a few fun roles. Whatever your skill or commitment level, we would love for you to get involved. Reply to this email or let us know at pick-up if you'd like to learn more.

  • Special events organizer (market day, smackdown, etc)
  • Volunteer shifts coordinator
  • Treasurer

THIS WEEK IN FOOD TALK

climate change dinner party

What will dinner parties look like post climate change? Goodbye chocolate...

A NYC-based photographer from Saveur magazine poses an interesting question: what will we be eating for dinner after sea levels rise? Through the medium of a photographic essay, she depicts a dystopic reality of life without chocolate, with seaweed and bivalves taking center stage. 

View and read more about her photo essay.

 

Cheers,

The WSCSA Core Committee
