Hi! I’m Bee, Growing Hope’s Incubator Kitchen Manager. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons, but mostly because of the bounty of food we have available this time of year. Bumper summer crops and cool weather greens, apples, squash, berries… One of the biggest delights is seeing what the makers in our incubator kitchen whip up with local ingredients. We had the privilege of hosting Beara Bakes recently for a pop-up on the urban farm- fried green tomatoes on freshly baked focaccia liberally kissed with dollops of pimento cheese along with sweet treats and salads and even fresh coffee sourced from Depot Town’s Hyperion Coffee. Children scampered around the youth garden, their parents strolling along the garden rows, demo beds, and hoop house… it was a beautiful slice of community support on the most gorgeous of autumn Sunday mornings.
