Hummingbird Wholesale and Slow Food Eugene Invite You To The Spring Bean Cleaning Spree–April 2nd
It’s your turn to help build our local food system and enjoy yourself doing it. There’s a whole hill o’ beans and they need to be sorted! Hummingbird Wholesale is helping out a local farmer who delivered some beans that were not in salable condition. Slow Food Eugene is helping sort and clean those beans so they can be put up for sale. This is one of those projects that require a community to help out in the beginning stages of a new agricultural product in the Willamette Valley. The task is easy, but hugely important in making locally grown legumes a reality in our area. So come on out after your trip to the Farmers Market and enjoy the good company that getting something done together creates. We need able hands to commit to at least two hours of bean cleaning, during the rest of the time you are welcome to munch on some food and make some new friends. We are also planning a few distractions to mix up the bean cleaning and keep things rolling. Kids are welcome at this event, but please do keep in mind that we have a mission to get these beans sorted, so it will be a working good time. Of course, this is a Slow Food event, so there will be some tasty things to keep us fueled while we do our sorting. DATE: Saturday, April 2, 2011 TIME: 2-5 pm PLACE: First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive Street, Eugene COST: FREE RSVP: We need to know ahead of time if you will be able to join us! Please let us know by contacting Erin Walkenshaw: email@example.com Space is a bit limited, and we know that there are lots of eager bean cleaners out there, so please do not wait to get back to us.
