WSCSA pick-up tomorrow, 4/18 + invitation to end of year potluck!
Here's what we're looking forward to tomorrow:
WEEKLY RECIPE INSPIRATION
Roasted root vegetable pasta with kale pesto
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.
SHARE THE LOVE!

WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES
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).
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.
THIS WEEK IN FOOD TALK
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.
