|Meet Minowa Farms and try the rice!|
Two new arrivals to Tokyo, Diana and Robin, are pretty excited about the good green stuff going on all around them here. So much so that they have joined up with the Mexico-Japan Society to create cross-cultural environmentally friendly series of events rooted in Diana's home country of Mexico and Robin's farm beginnings in Australia to share the pleasure in their findings with others. I think good things are in store for all of us!
And, I'm not saying that just because their first event features a farmers market tour with yours truly at the Earth Day Farmers Market on Sunday, November 17th. Mark your calendars, bring a bit of spending money, a backpack (Trust me. You'll be glad you did.), and an appetite. The market promises, as always, to be brimming with the seasons best grown in a manner healthy for the earth and the eater.
What's going to happen
We'll meet shortly before the market opens at 10am on the bridge that leads to Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi Park. I'll introduce myself, the market, and you all will introduce yourselves. Then we're off to meet the growers and producers, sample some seasonal scrumptousness and shop. I'll be loitering about to answer questions or help ask them, and then we'll unofficially gather for lunch. Doesn't that sound great?!?
