Take your time and enjoy a picnic from 4 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 28. Slow Food Charleston is hosting a country-style Farm to Plate Picnic at Thackeray Farms on Harts Bluff Road on Wadmalaw Island. Bring your own food, beverages and blankets or chairs. Local farmer Shawn Thackeray and Rita’s Roots owner Rita Bachmann will lead tours of the farm, and Slow Food Charleston board member Holly Herrick will be signing copies of her newly released cookbook, Southern Farmers Market Cookbook. A portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit Slow Food Charleston’s organic garden project at Sanders-Clyde Elementary School. Cost is $10 for Slow Food members, $20 for nonmembers. No charge for those younger than 18. For information, call 843-225-4307 or send an e-mail.
