Local farm fresh harvest is the theme this week

    This Wednesday, July 17th, begins the Farm2Table weeks in Howard County.  Restaurant weeks have become popular the past few years as a nice change of pace from usual dining experience.   Usually the typical week is centered around fixed price menu choices.  This restaurant period is themed to highlight local buying for the food offerings.
     Tomorrow, July 16th, from 6 to 9 pm the Elioak Farm presents a "Film Feastival" which the Sun describes as "a sampling of farm-fresh dishes prepared by several Howard County restaurants. Local farmers, restaurateurs, chefs, business owners and agricultural experts will be on hand to talk about farming, healthy lifestyles and environmental stewardship. Additionally, guests will have an opportunity to watch several short films that emphasize the importance of local agriculture and food."  The event is free, but advance registration is required at http://www.hceda.org/agriculture, and guests are welcome to make donations. Any money collected will support the Howard County Food Bank. Call 410-313-6500 with any questions.
  
This farm harvest theme is finally followed by the film "Maryland Harvest," will be shown on Wednesday, July 17, 3 p.m., at Howard County Library's Miller Branch, where a panel of chefs and farmers will discuss their working relationships. Registration is required for this event; go to http://www.hclibrary.org/
or call 410-313-1950.
