what / when
On Sunday, September 25th, we are hosting a Bean Celebration & Annual Member Meeting in downtown Asheville from 4pm – 6pm. This event is free and open to the public — and it is a potluck! We extend a special welcome to our local chapter members and bean project participants.
We are gathering to celebrate our 2016 Heritage Food Project, which featured the Cherokee Trail of Tears bean, an heirloom variety that is delicious, easy to grow, and culturally and historically rooted here in Appalachia. Participants of the project are asked to create a dish that showcases the bean, if possible. We will take the opportunity to share our experiences with growing, preparing, and preserving these beans, and meet other growers in the community.
Burial Beer Co. is generously providing the location – a beautiful, casual and convenient spot in the lower gardens outdoors at the brewery. The event occurs during regular business hours, and we encourage folks to support Burial Beer by purchasing drinks from the bar. No outside alcohol may be brought onto the premises.
Please bring your own reusable plate and fork, to help reduce waste. We will provide water and tea.
Let us know if you plan to join us! The venue is family-friendly, so please bring your family and friends. RSVP to [email protected] with your name as well as number attending.
