Eric and Tom's project within the project:
We are weaving circles here out of our kitchen - food loops, if you will. Local and store-made selections: biscuits, muffins, pies, beef, chicken, stew, chili and on and on.
Cameron with Roland MacReynolds of CFSA discussing exciting foodshed news:
Eric Henry at T.S. Designs has been a champion from the beginning. He and his wife Lisa were amazingly gracious to me while I was at the marketplace in Pittsboro. They live in Burlington yet were willing to travel the hour it took to get to pbo for food. It is hard to find a more committed soul for sustainability. Their plant is state of the art green, they use locally produced organic cotton, and above all, they treat people right. So it is an honor and an inspiration to work with Eric.
So as we provide lunch in concert with Charles Sydnor from Braeburn farm we are able to offer ever closing food loops. The pies will be made with local flour, apples, sweet potatoes, dairy, butter, eggs. The greens are local, as is the cream and the potatoes for potato salad. This is possible because people like Eric are committed to it.
Thank you Eric.
