Learn About Cornucopia Project on Tuesday
FITCHBURG -- ALFA Food For Thought will be held Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 2:30 p.m., in the Ellis White Lecture Hall, Hammond Building, Fitchburg State University, 160 Pearl St.
Kin Schilling, founder of the Cornucopia Project and winner of the New Hampshire Magazine award as one of New Hampshire’s “Remarkable Women of Cuisine in 2013” is the guest speaker.
In response to high rates of childhood obesity across the country, Schilling planted some seeds that grew into The Cornucopia Project.
Founded in 2006, the project’s goal is “to seek to better the lives of our community members by providing programming that empowers them to grow their own food, teaches them about sustainable and organic growing methods, and encourages them to make healthy food choices.”
Come learn how Schilling’s love of cooking and gardening on a small plot of land grew from a hobby to a CSA to the Cornucopia Project. She will bring an active bee board/hive for viewing through a glass window.
