Over the past nine months, something very special has begun to take shape on the Beaver Meadow Road.
It started with a seed of an idea - to connect the growers and eaters within our community - and to bring people together around a table of food that's grown with respect for the environment. Thanks to the help of our family, friends both old and new, and talented food producers nearby, the seed of an idea that we called 'Origins' has developed into something very real. As you might expect, the evolution of Origins has followed the shifting seasons...
We set the wheels in motion, but Origins has taken on a life of it's own, and it's driven by this community of growers and eaters together. The feeling of community has grown stronger each week as we celebrated the local harvest and food culture with new friends and musicians. We've shared the joy of eating healthy meals alongside the farmers who grew our food. In this space we've also celebrated births, marriages, and the life of the departed.
And now we've glided into the crispness of fall. The cafe will be dormant until spring returns, and we are preparing to depart on the next adventure - to Italy for Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre! Thousands of people will soon come together in Torino to discuss the future of food, the importance of our everyday choices, and to celebrate the incredibly diverse food cultures of this planet. Looking forward to bringing a whole lotta goodness back to you in the Spring!
We'll be using this blog to share more about our journey to the origins of good food and of our experiences abroad. Follow along if you're curious!
