Farm Fair at Yale Celebrates the Earth

Yale College student organizations, headed by the Yale Sustainable Food Project, will host a farm fair at Cross Campus between High and College streets, on Friday, April 23, 12-3 p.m.

Free and open to the public, the event will bring together local farmers, feathered denizens of their farmyards and samples of their ware.

Yale’s head chef will be on hand serving up lamb and Portobello burgers, artisanal cheese and other treats from the farms around us.

The fair will offer those attending a chance to plant seeds of their own in take-home pots, learn all about composting, play games to enhance their environmental awareness and just have good old-fashioned fun.

There will be all sorts of freebies and prizes including tee-shirts, water bottles and posters.

Yale bands will round out the festivities with live music.

This event is part of a larger Earth Day weekend celebration that includes a contra dance, a panel discussion on bringing sustainable food to college dining halls, a Community Service Day volunteer opportunity at the Yale garden and a talk by Eric Schlosser, author of “Fast Food Nation.”
