Slow Food South Bay Spring Potluck and San Mateo EcoVillage Tour
San Mateo EcoVillage is located in two four unit apartment buildings on the waterfront between San Mateo and Foster City. We have extensive organic gardens and have planted about three dozen fruit trees and have grafted most of them with three to six varieties, and raise chickens and honey bees.....and sell honey and eggs. We will have a tour about 11:30 and set-up for a potluck about 12:30.
We have some extra dishes and tableware, but it would be useful if you brought your own place settings. We have quite a few chairs, but if you have one that is convenient to carry, bring it along. Depending on the size of the group and the weather, we will eat either on the dock or up in our "community" room. We have a community agreement to not have shared meals with anything higher on the food chain than fish, so please try to keep to vegetarian dishes, or fish. Bring jackets to sit out on the dock in case it remains cool.
If you would like to stay later and help in a garden project that would be great, starting at about 2:00. You might want to bring your garden gloves and your favorite hand tool.
Note that we are also looking for people to live here who want to share in creating a more sustainable lifestyle. You can read more about us on our website.
This is a great chance to meet your fellow chapter members. We'll spend part of the potluck talking about what is going on in the chapter and brainstorming about possible events for the next quarter and beyond. Some of our best ideas have been born at potlucks!
