Real Food and Pittsburgh mini- Climate Ride

Join us at Schwartz Market on Saturday, April 23, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The store will be open during these hours as we explore options for the future of the market space and the entire building. The market will be selling items from a few local farmers. Local brown eggs, chocolate sauce from Love Street Living Foods, fair trade shade grown organic coffee from Building New Hope (BNH), and salad dressing from the local South Side 17th Street Cafe. This short and humble time frame will give us some time to visit with one another and talk about implementation of ideas that have been generated over the past two years. Join us to learn and explore as we move forward.

So it has occured to me, what is real food anyway? Is it o.k. to eat foods that are not locally produced and grown? What makes food healthy? How important is the composition of the soil that we grow our food in? How crucial is pure water for us to drink and feed our plants, and how important is pure air?

 Is it fine to eat bananas in Pittsburgh? Why would someone even have that question? Is it feasible to grow oranges in Pittsburgh? How much citrus is good for a human body to consume? What is the value of fermented foods for our bodies and our selves? My dad has got the answer. He says everything in moderation!

Between 1:30 and 2:00 PM the PGH mini- climate ride will be passing through the market and for a building tour on their ride that begins and ends in the South Side. Celebrate World Environment Day with us!
