On Saturday, Sept. 27th,  Imani Garden held its 5th annual lobster dinner and permaculture talk.  The talk this year was given by Claudia Joseph, a well-known permaculture instructor and gardener at the permaculture garden at the Old Stone House in Park Slope.  As she spoke, garden members Roman Yavich and Travis Frazelle loaded lobsters and corn on the cob onto steaming seaweed over a bed of charcoal.  

 

Around 5 PM the cooked lobsters and corn made a journey over to the Concern for Independent Living at 151 Rochester Avenue, a few blocks from Imani.  There the David Ambrosio trio performed live jazz while diners partook of delicious lobster, corn on the cob, potatoes, Bangladeshi steamed vegetables and homemade cake.  This was the first year we've served our dinner at this location and it worked out great!  

 

Many thanks to Cynthia Solomon and the staff at CIL.  Also thanks those who donated tickets for the event, to David Ambrosio and this trio and to all of the Imani gardeners who worked so hard to pull of this labor intensive event.
