Cities as Solutions: Fairview Gardens as a model for city survival.

2:00 pm until 4:00 pm

Cities as Solutions: Fairview Gardens as a model for city survival. Presented by Mark Tollefson, Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens. Our even-larger urban areas are part of our reality, and they must become part of our solutions for the problems of food safety, distribution, recreation and quality of life. We can find answers right in our backyard. See how a small urban farm can be a model for how to thrive in an urban environment.

Lisa’s Favorite Pot Luck Sweet Treat:

While my family and my little man love cookies and cakes especially when made with less sugar or creative toppings my family’s favorite is my Mini-Tarts.

Graham Cracker Crust:

2 Packages Organic Graham Crackers

1/2 stick butter

3 Tbsp Blue Agave Sweetener

Mini Tart Crust

Mash up graham crackers in a large bow.  Add Butter and Blue Agave Sweeter.  Then line cupcake tins with Graham Cracker mixture.  Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes.   Just long enough to make them a bit crispy.

Yum

Then add your favorite filling.  My son loves Vanilla Yogurt and blue berries.  He also loves yogurt and strawberries or peaches.  Pudding is also a great filling.  The combination’s are endless and you get get as healthy with your filling as you like.  Make sure to refrigerate overnight so that your Mini-Tart sets.

Enjoy!

Recipe of the Week:Quinoa Fennel Pilaf

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery rib, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 carrot, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 small fennel bulb (sometimes called anise), trimmed, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups water
Prep:
Rinse quinoa in a bowl in at least 5 changes of water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water, until water runs clear.

Add water and salt and pepper to taste and cook over moderately low heat, covered, until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
