AN EVENING AT THE FARM
La Milpa Organica in Escondido hosts a free potluck the third Saturday of every month. The potluck is open to all. Guests arrive, bearing fresh, organic dishes, to the farm. The owners fire up the outdoor brick pizza oven. Pizzas are cranked out - and guests just pick what looks good. Could be a vegan pizza. Could be four cheese or veggie - grown right at La Milpa. Children play on the swing set and run through the rows of lettuces. It is the epitome of a community gathering...Meeting people from all walks of life, talking about shared interests, enjoying the spirits of those who are dedicated to organic farming. At nightfall, a movie is shown underneath the canopy of a large, old tree. We watched one on bees. Sometimes, guests bring their guitars and break out into song. Check it out.
