Garden of Eatin'

Fresh, local food lines the Longmont Museum’s walls.

We’re all embracing it these days, yet there’s more to the local food movement than meets the eye. After all, it’s nice to know that your food has a shortened carbon footprint and all, but did you ever stop to think about where it actually comes from? On Zweck’s Farm, a new exhibit opening today at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center, 400 Quail Road in Longmont, goes a long way toward offering insight. Featuring photographs by Jane Gabrilove of life on a family-owned and -run Centennial farm on the western edge of Longmont, the show logs a year of seasons in the space of 120 images.

And just to raise your appreciation level for local food a little bit higher, the museum will host a reception on Friday, July 25, with farm-fresh eats provided by the Zwecks and other local farmers. The exhibition then continues through August 24; for information, log on to www.ci.longmont.co.us/museum or call 303-651-8374.
July 19-Aug. 24, 2008
