- The Naked Table Locavore Lunch
On Saturday, would-be woodworkers gather at Bridgewater furniture maker Shackleton Thomas for a forest wander — to better understand the trees and wood — and a table-making workshop. On Sunday, they schlep their new tables toward the village green in Woodstock and set them up for lunch on the nearby Middle Covered Bridge. The Woodstock Farmers Market, the year-round locavore grocery on Route 4, supplies several courses of healthful, simply prepared local meats, veggies and cheeses. Then state Economic Development Commissioner Joan Goldstein offers words on making Vermont a more resilient and sustainable place for all.
The Naked Table Locavore Lunch: Sunday, August 19, 12:30 p.m., Middle Covered Bridge, Woodstock. $65. Info, 457-2911, sustainablewoodstock.org.
