Potluck at Bitney Springs Farm in Nevada County

Submitted to Prospector

A potluck open to the community will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Bitney Springs Farm.

The event is one of a series of potlucks offered by Sierra Harvest.

Bitney Springs Farm is a small family farm dedicated to growing wholesome foods for a healthier planet. Everything is grown using sustainable practices and vegetables, fruits and flowers are available throughout the growing season. Host is Christine Riccio for this sixth Sierra Harvest potluck of the season.

Attendees may buy fresh corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, flowers and more at the farm stand, or buy some of their compost tea for a garden at home. Bring a container if interested.

The self-serve farm is generally open on Wednesdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., but will also be open until 6 p.m. on the night of the potluck.

A tour of the farm with Farmer Christine will take place at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will begin at 6 p.m.

What to bring:

Utensils, a plate and cup for yourself/selves

A bountiful dish to share, (its nice to label key ingredients for those with allergies)

A blanket to sit on

A healthy appetite

There is no charge and no RSVP needed.
