Heirloom Harvest Week, October 12 through 18


We hope that you can join us in celebrating the agricultural bounty of New England and the RAFT Grow-Out project during the RAFT Grow-out Heirloom Harvest Week. It starts this upcoming Monday, October 12th and runs through October 18th in Providence and Newport-area restaurants.

Heirloom Harvest Week is a celebration of New England’s agricultural heritage, biodiversity and farmer-chef connections.

Here at Slow Food RI, we’re all very excited about the RAFT Grow-out project and the reintroduction of our region’s place-based foods. The Heirloom Harvest Week is a great way to try out some of those foods, and, who knows – perhaps persuade you to include them in your seed order, or to request seed starts from your local nursery next year?
