TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE TICKETS, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!


Join us for this lovely community gathering at Shilo Farm on Sunday, August 5th from 2pm to 6pm!

Slow Food Seacoast's Gleaned Garden Supper will feature delicious wood-fired pizzas cooked in Shilo Farm's cob oven, collaboratively built by owners Amylyn and Jonas Zev Amberger and friends, Sara Becker and Andrew Gardiner from Harvest Design Collective. In addition to the pizza, we'll have side dishes, and desserts available for folks to enjoy. This event is BYOB.

All of these wonderful food items will be prepared mostly from gleaned produce ("seconds" or excess produce) from local farms. The purpose of preparing the meal in this manner is to raise awareness about food waste and the issues surrounding our current food system. We'll be hosting a food waste discussion around 4pm the day of the event.

The supper will be set up picnic-style with a live bluegrass band (Old Hat & Company), homestead tours, lawn games, ping pong, and much more! A special thank you to our donors, Maine Grains, Cabot Cheese, and Backyard Garlic and to all of the participating farms, including Black Kettle Farm and Phil's Farm that help make the Gleaned Garden Supper possible.

Purchase tickets or sign up to volunteer and receive one free ticket to attend. Early bird tickets ($28) for adults are available until June 30th! No pets allowed on the property.


We have a special VIP ticket option available!

This special option includes a Foraging and Wild-Crafting Tour with Slow Food leader and ethnobotanist John Forti (www.jforti.com) before the event at 1pm. John and the founders of Shilo Farm, will lead an expedition for edible and medicinal plants on the property. Along the way we will learn more about the plants we encounter and the natural world around us. At the end of the tour we will make a seasonal tea from botanicals we find along the way. VIP tickets are $44 and includes the foraging tour, meal, beverages, and more!
