Reflections on Spring Open Farm Day 2015

Farm Day 2015 051.JPG

I'd say Saturday was a near-perfect farm day. Big HUGE thank you to everyone who visited! This is one of my favorite photos, and I can't help sharing how it happened that Chef Lynn Wells cooked lunch at Saturday's event. Last month I spent 3 days in Charlotte getting continuing education credits for registered dietitians. I had been nervous about signing up for the class because it was during "busy season" at the farm, but it was close enough to home that I could make the drive back and forth each day, and, as a dietitian, I needed the credit-hours. One day during a break in the lectures I stepped outside to get some fresh air and stretch my legs, and as a result I made a new dietitian-friend named Christine from Ontario, Canada. Long story short, Christine suggested I contact her friend and former dietitian, Lynn, who now works as a personal chef in Greensboro, NC (Thyme Well Spent - Personal Chef Service).  Funny how things happen, but in the course of about a week Lynn and I made plans for her to cook at the farm. I love this picture because it portrays Lynn in her element, towel slung over the shoulder, chef's hat, and beautiful decor in the open air. I know some of you didn't get a chance to enjoy Lynn's food, but it was amazing! I look forward to collaborating on future events. Thanks again, EVERYONE!
