An Evening of Celebration!
The Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation and Slow Food East End will host “A Moveable Feast”, an evening of celebration, honoring Joshua Levine and supporting Edible School Gardens on the East End.
“A Moveable Feast,” which is now in its seventh year, will take place on April 2, 2017 from 4 – 7pm at Dodds & Eder Landscape Design Showroom in Sag Harbor. As a result of this event, the East End of Long Island has grown into one of the largest, most successful school garden programs in the United States, 27 schools in all! RSVP Today!
“A Moveable Feast” not only celebrates the legacy of Joshua Levine and supports Edible School Gardens, it is the kick-off of the spring season and the waking up of the earth and our community after a long winter. Everyone is ready for a great party with exceptional food and drink, along with music that will get you up on your feet.
Guests will have the opportunity to meet and chat with some of the East End’s best chefs and beverage purveyors, while moving from station to station and feasting on their latest culinary creations, which may include veggies grown in our very own school gardens! See separate document for list of participants as of March 1, 2017.
There will also be a silent auction featuring items donated from local farms, fishermen, restaurants, vineyards and merchants on the East End and beyond. RSVP Today!

It’s hard to sum up exactly what role Lucy Senesac plays at Sang Lee Farms in Peconic.
Customers of the certified organic operation might find her selling Romanesco cauliflower and ginger scallion dip at a weekly farmers market. Maybe she’s the one handing out a recipe for potato leek soup to winter CSA members. She certainly can be seen in the fields pulling rows of Korean radishes from the ground before the first frost.
But Ms. Senesac also works with North Fork school gardens, consulting with administrators about what to plant and how to build beds. She has revamped and operated Sang Lee’s Young Farmers Camp, a summer program for 7- to 12-year-olds interested in organic farming, since 2014. She has organized gleaning projects with schools and coordinated donations to the food bank at Island Harvest…continue
