Harvest of Hope
Memorial Medical Center Cancer Services is pleased to present the Harvest of Hope, a day at the farm.
At the inaugural Harvest of Hope, we celebrate the beauty of local foods that come as close to Mother Earth as possible. Get ready to get connected with your food system for good taste, vibrant health, sustainability and beyond. We’ll get cooking, learn about eating more whole plants, meet our local farmers and artisans, and even be inspired to dig in the dirt a little as we interact on a real, working farm for one glorious late summer day. We will wrap it all up with a social hour with appetizers and a tasting of local wines, field-to-table dinner and regional music. Sound fabulous? Let the celebration begin!

Get Plant-Powered for Life
Sharon Palmer, R.D., The Plant-Powered Dietitian, shares interactive nutrition lessons on the benefits of diving into whole plant foods for optimal health. You’ll gain all the inspiration you need to bring these lessons to life in your own kitchen, for good taste and good health.
Eating Green with Envy, and crafting food from the ground up
Chef Jesse Layman, the Vinegar Chef, hosts this interactive class that will take participants on an expedition of what seasonal eating really means along with a tasting of four different in-season plant-based ideas from appetizers to dessert.
We will talk about the healthy alternatives, techniques, ways of seasoning and creating flavors. And most importantly, we will share how to focus on lifestyle rather than diets. Recipes, ideas, food and even wine pairings.
Home Gardening Class
Ali Stambaugh from Westurf Nursery will be showing us how easy it is to companion plant edible flowers, vegetables and herbs, along with ornamental plants in containers to be enjoyed all season long. This class will inspire the home gardener and give confidence to those who would like to grow food to eat fresh from their own garden.
