The Eat Local Week “6 days farm to table food festival” is an amazing opportunity to explore and get to grips with local foods.
Due to the pandemic, we are waking up to the fact that our relationship with Mother Nature and thus where our food comes from is crucial for humanity’s survival.
Local foods are easy to grow, use less water, have a high nutritional and medicinal value, and are cheaper. They are also relevant both culturally and socially. Becoming familiar with and eating local foods is essential for the future of Auroville.
We invite you to come and harvest every morning at 6:30 with the aim to eat at 8 am or even a little earlier. After breakfast, you are free to go ( or help on the farm) and come back at lunch time. If you have time you can help at the Solitude Farm Cafe with lunch preparation but people who have jobs or other activities can just come and eat.
For the evening meal participants can come at 5:00 to harvest with the aim to eat by 7 pm.
Every day we will prepare traditional recipes that make use of local foods that are part of the nutritional heritage of this bio-region. The dishes will be tasty and different every day.
This experience will demand your enthusiastic participation. It is really a group exploration so be ready to help create!
