September 3 and November 19, 2015 – The Millet Project at Cal Academy NightLife!
Please join us on Sep. 3 for the “Fermentation” theme at Cal NightLife with our millet beer brewmasters Matt and Liz! More Information on the California Academy of Sciences NightLife “Fermented” here!
Please join us at the Gill Tract Community Farm at Albany, CA for our Millet Exhibit on Sunday, August 30 from 12-5 pm.
For the last few months, we and our collaborators have been working hard – farming four types of millets in CA, educating our community about the awesomeness of these highly nutritious, drought-tolerant, and gluten-free grains, and cooking up a storm and learning with our family and friends about tasty millet recipes!
At the Millet Project Exhibit, you will have the chance to:
1. See our beautiful field of millets
3. Taste millet-based food and meet the millet beer brewmaster in person
4. Pick up seeds to plant you own millets, and millet samples to cook your own millet dishes!
We are excited to share our experience with and the many agricultural, economic and sociocultural advantages of this grain with you through food, drink, and talk. You can take a stroll through our small-scale millet farm at the Gill Tract Farm and see different varieties of this grain growing right there. Have you ever tried millet beer? Or millet sausages? A millet burger? Maybe a millet muffin? No? Then you should definitely check it out at the millet exhibit! We will have millet recipes from all over the world for you to taste.
For more information, please email us at the millet project @ gmail. com (no spaces)
We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family on August 30th!
