Starksboro’s harvest supper to benefit environmental educaiton
STARKSBORO — The Starksboro Conservation Commission will host its annual Harvest Supper at Robinson Elementary School in Starksboro, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.
The Harvest Supper features Addison County and Vermont sourced foods and product alongside the culinary talents of the members of the Conservation Commission. The menu includes Stonewood Farm turkey, stuffing, gravy, roasted root vegetables and butternut squash soup. Apple, berry and pumpkin pies made by the Four Winds volunteers will be served for dessert along with hot and cold beverages.
Tickets will be sold at the door of the multipurpose room of Robinson School, 41 Parsonage Road, in Starksboro village. The cost for a family of two adults and two children is $25; on an individual basis the tab will be adults $10, children 12 and younger $5. All proceeds from the Harvest Supper benefit the Four Winds Institute natural science program at Robinson School.
The members of the Conservation Commission and the Four Winds Nature Institute share a common goal of striving to improve environmental literacy throughout our Starksboro community by providing people of all ages with meaningful opportunities to explore the natural world while learning the creative problem-solving and citizenship skills needed to protect it.
The Harvest Supper is hosted annually by the Starksboro Conservation Commission, an advisory body whose mission is to provide leadership in efforts to protect Starksboro’s natural and agricultural resources through education, conservation advocacy, land stewardship, and the town’s planning process. Adult supervised outdoor activities will be offered for children from 6-7 p.m.
Dinner organizers are always on the prowl for volunteers to help out the day of the Harvest Supper, so contact a Conservation Commission member if you can share your time.
