Put Anthony Bourdain's far-flung foodie experiences on mute and listen — not all culinary undertakings happen in some exclusive, distant destination involving a talent booker, plane tickets, and a passport. The true, gritty food adventures worth savoring could be happening in your very own backyard, apartment windowsill, or abandoned construction site turned guerrilla community garden plot.
Don't know where to begin on your exploratory culinary excursion Saturday? Then board the Growing Broward bus and learn all there is about the expanding local farm-to-table movement and efforts for food sustainability. Sponsored by Broward Food System Cooperative, a nonprofit organization supporting the building of a just, healthy, and sustainable economy around local food, the Farm to Table bus tour will board from Eucalyptus Gardens (2430 NE 13th Ave., Wilton Manors) at 3 p.m. and visit Treehuggers, Harpke Family, and Flagler Village farms where guests will devour locally sourced dishes along the way. Master farmer and cofounder of Growing Broward, Michael Madfis will lead a talk on how to grow your own thriving garden, and there will be live music by Blue Sky Drive and Jim Wuster. Admission costs $35 to $65, and reservations are required. Call 954-914-5441, or visit facebook.com/Browardfood.
