The UNH Organic Gardening Club will host its first Community  Dinner this Friday at 6 p.m. Members of the club will spend Friday afternoon at the Waysmeet Center on Mill Road, preparing a menu bursting with fresh produce from the garden, located at 10

Spinney Lane  in Durham.

Late summer means that hearty vegetables are in season, and the tables will be piled with butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash, as well as hearty greens such as kale, kohlrabi, and broccoli. These veggies and more will make their way into dishes such as homemade squash macaroni and cheese and an autumn salad.

Dinner is free and all are welcome to join in this gathering of students and the Durham community. Anyone interested in volunteering can stop by the Waysmeet Center at 3 p.m. on Friday and take part in cooking and preparations.
