Grandma's Outdoor Kitchen

The Commons at Fertile Ground is offering an opportunity for family and friends to honor the lives of the women who raised them with the construction of a new covered space over our existing Cob pizza oven.  
Karen Nelson and Gail O'Sullivan both lost their mothers in the last six months. They've decided to use family donations to jump start this project to honor their mothers. You're invited to honor yours, too. 
 Helen Nelson was well known for her gracious entertaining and home cooked meals, she was a talented and creative homemaker. Harvest seasons were spent with her daughters gathering and preserving local foods. When winter arrived her pantry was stocked with summer goodness.   Doris Sullivan enjoyed entertaining guests and always had great snacks ready. She canned food from her husband's garden well into her 70's. She had one old cook book with discoveries written in the margins and sticky spots on every page. She loved to be outdoors and cooking over the fire. 
The new outdoor kitchen will be used for summer Seed to Table camp which introduces children to the joys of growing and preparing meals from the garden.  The kitchen will also be used for food preservation workshops, community gatherings and will serve as a neighborhood location for food prep in times of emergency.
If you would like to honor your mother or grandmothers by making a donation, we would appreciate your contribution. This kitchen will serve the community and make our mothers proud.
