The Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group is headed to Amesbury this month to visit Kitchen Local, the North Shore’s recently-opened, first certified shared-use kitchen. We’ll be touring the community kitchen, and learning about why it was developed and how to use the space, and then convening to discuss how businesses of this nature support local food resources. To quote from their website, “Chefs, small-scale food producers, farmers, and nutrition instructors can use the kitchen for food production, catering, baking, cooking classes, menu planning, training, recipe testing, photography, and product development. At Kitchen Local, a community of foodpreneurs comes together in a collaborative environment to share their passion for food with the world! ”
The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food.
