Once again it's almost time for Rippling Waters Organic Farm's Soil to Supper community dinner. This year's annual harvest celebration takes place Sept. 9 from 2 to 7 p.m. at the sustainable farm in Standish.
Before enjoying an all organic and vegetarian meal, guests can take a tour of the farm's permaculture gardens and enjoy live music by Britta Pejic and Les Frenchmen, Gin Mill Julep, the Pineries and Pierce Woodward. Music starts at 3:15 p.m.
Dinner will be served at 4 p.m. and features a menu of baklava, vegetarian chili, cauliflower marranca, Spanish green beans, fresh picked sweet corn, a variety of salads (including potato salad, a grain based salad, cole slaw, and pasta salad), and corn and zucchini bread. A variety of desserts will be offered as well as soft drinks from Maine Root and Green Bee Soda companies.
The farm asks for a $10 donation for dinner. For a small additional donation, guests can enjoy assorted beers and wines.
