This gorgeous day is a reminder that it's almost time for local fruits and veggies -- and the Capital District Community Gardens annual spring brunch.
The CDCG brunch is this Sunday, May 4 at Hudson Valley Community College, and it's a pretty popular event. More than 100 local food purveyors will be represented, and there will be music, kids activities, and a silent auction.
AOA has a pair of tickets to give away -- and they could be yours.
To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:
What local fruit or veggie are you looking forward to this season?
It could be something specific -- a certain variety of fruit or vegetable, or a veggie from a certain farm (or your backyard). Or it could just be something like summer tomatoes. (Because those are way better than the winter tomatoes.) If you've got a good recipe for preparing it, even better.
We'll draw one winner at random.
The CDCG does so much good work in the Capital Region: the community gardens program at sites all around the area; the Veggie Mobile; their Produce Project; putting healthy food in local convenience stores, and much more. The brunch is one of the ways people can help support that work. Tickets are $25 and they're still available.
