The 11th Whatcom Harvest Dinner is set for Sunday - September 29, 2013.
After last years success, the Whatcom Harvest Dinner will be held at BelleWood Acres Farm Market & Bistro again! The dinner supports learning about our food, where and how it was grown, while enjoying how it was prepared through a community meal. Most all of the ingredients featured are procured from school and community gardens, grown just for the occasion.
The Whatcom Harvest Dinner is a family-friendly event that raises awareness about local food-based education opportunities, supports and celebrates local farmers and fishers and the bounty our region has to offer, and our ability to experience and access healthy, local food for our children and community.

BelleWood Acres Farm Market & Bistro is Whatcom County’s signature apple orchard and craft distillery. Their new facility is located just 6 miles north of Bellingham on the Guide Meridian. They grow 20 varieties of U-pick apples and pears, plus pumpkins, gourds, squash, corn, sunflowers and more. We will have the opportunity to tour the farm and distillery, take a bin ride through the orchard, or enjoy a quiet walk along the Tenmile creek. Learn more about the farm through their Facebook page or at www.bellewoodapples.com.
The dinner is organized by the Fourth Corner Slow Food Chapter, along with the four local groups that will benefit from the proceeds: Explorations Academy, Sustainable Connections, Common Threads Farm, and Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association.
