Mark the calendar: Nov. 22 is a "Raise the Roots" dinner to benefit Beardsley Community Farm at Tomato Head on Market Square (6 p.m.-9 p.m.) I loved those guys in the Ben Epperson era (he's moved on to Healthy Communities, Healthy Kids) and love them just as much now that Khann Chov has taken over as Farm Manager.
Here are just a few of my favorite past Metro Pulse articles about Beardsley Farm (yeah, I wrote them all, so what?):
