Now this is my kind of “holiday”: World Kitchen Garden Day is August 22nd.
Kitchen Gardener’s International started this worldwide event back in 2003 and it’s become an annual celebration of food produced on a human-scale. It’s a chance for people to get together with their friends and family to celebrate homegrown, handmade foods.
I see it as a great excuse to have a summer party, to eat great food and maybe even to generate casual conversation about food and food production. Plus, what a fun way to show off your garden!
I’ll be at a birthday party that day, so I’ll just have to bring something special from my garden to add to the menu.
Here’s to World Kitchen Garden Day! Buon Appetito!
