You are cordially invited to attend the first seasonal Forage Oakland Marmalade/ Jam/ Syrup/ And Such Exchange. The exchange will take place on Sunday, February 22, 2009, between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm and will be held at a private residence in Temescal (in close proximity to the Sunday Temescal Famer’s Market). The exact location is 411 51st St., Oakland. Come and meet your jamming neighbors, sign up for Forage Oakland, and pick up a jar of jam on your way to the farmer’s market. Please RSVP so that I can gage general interest in the exchange, and so I can tell the host how many people to expect.
If you are unable to attend the marmalade exchange, but would still like to partake in the fun, email me and we can arrange a time to collect the goods between now and Sunday.
Though I think it is implicit, the jams should be home made.
Other Upcoming Events
Orange Harvest Party
Helene and her neighbors are hosting an orange/ rosemary harvest party on Sunday, 1 March. I’d like to extend the invitation to others who might like to join in on the fun. Bring something to share for brunch, fruit picker if you have one (or long, limber arms), and bags for collecting fruit. I will be handing out postcards to all who come Sunday so that they can document how they used the rosemary and oranges (as a means of showing how bountiful a single tree can be). Also, several recipes will be available to take home. If you’re interested in attending this event, please email me directly as space is quite limited. It will take place between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in West Oakland.
Aunt Carla’s Chickens’ Eggs
A limited number of Forage Oakland chickens’ eggs are available for gift or barter. If you’d like to receive Aunt Carla’s chickens’ eggs, please send me an email.
Thank you and see you on the 22 February or 1 March!
