high time for pie time

It might not be the best news for swimsuit season, but the Durham News had a tasty article about an upcoming pie social:

The folks over at SEEDS (South Eastern Efforts Developing Sustainable Spaces, 706 E. Gilbert St., http://www.seedsnc.org) are no dummies. They know that pies are just the way to lure in donations for the Durham Inner-City Gardeners program.

The Pie Social and Skill Share Silent Auction on Sunday, April 19, will raise money for stipends of the group of teens employed from urban neighborhoods to grow produce at the SEEDS campus, then sell their harvest at the Durham Farmers’ Market.

For a suggested donation of $10, you can sample pies from 2 to 6 p.m. donated by local restaurants including Watts Grocery, Scratch Bakery, Lantern, The Farmer’s Daughter, Ninth Street Bakery, Crooks Corner, Parker & Otis and Foster’s Market.

Offerings are rumored to include buttermilk and strawberry rhubarb, as well as savory quiches and veggie pot pies. Skills to be auctioned include a day of cheese making, heirloom Southern baking and pickling lessons.

The folks at SEEDS are still looking for more skills and more volunteers so contact them at 683-1197 if you’d like to help out.

How can you go wrong with strawberry rhubarb pie??
