September Sunday school for the stomach

eaglestreetrooftopKids everywhere are tasting the return of education next week and not liking it one bit. But maybe a little Sunday school will sweeten the deal? This Sunday, Sept. 5, is the first of three September Read & Eat Sundays at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Greenpoint. To kick off the free series (with tastings) this weekend, Brooklyn food writer and chef Cathy Erway will share her favorite end-of summer recipes with produce picked right there on the rooftop. Then the series continues on Sept. 19 with Anna Lappe (whose adult-sized samples of locally-grown infant food have us more than slightly curious) and finishes on Sept. 26 with professor and NY-food expert Annie Hauwk-Lawson.

The free lectures are all from 2 to 3 p.m. And to add to the back-to-school vibe (in a good way), Eagle Street is teaming up with Word bookstore this Sunday for the launch of their farm lending library.
