In conjunction with National Farmers Market Week 2014 (Aug. 3-9, 2014), Roland Park Place — Baltimore City’s only nonprofit continuing care retirement community — is teaming up with the Johns Hopkins University Office of Sustainability and Keswick Green Team to support the efforts of local farms featured at the Johns Hopkins at Keswick Farmers Market.
On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, Roland Park Place’s Community Involvement Committee will host a live cooking demonstration where RPP’s Executive Chef Mark Tracey will share a delicious menu of an original Ratatouille of Summer Vegetables with Andouille and Goat Cheese. The dish will feature all fresh and locally-sourced ingredients from vendors at the Farmers Market including Everblossom Farm and Three Springs Fruit Farm. Complimentary samples of the dish will be distributed to visitors.
Following the cooking demonstration, Chef Mark will offer his expertise to visitors at the Market who might be intimidated about buying or cooking fresh produce. Those at the market who have purchased produce or other ingredients from vendors can ask the Chef for personal recipe suggestions and cooking recommendations based on what they’ve purchased.

About the Johns Hopkins Sustainability Network
The Johns Hopkins Sustainability Network is the network of students, staff and faculty who are committed to promoting sustainability in their operations and among the larger Johns Hopkins community. At Johns Hopkins, we understand sustainability as the collection of smart and responsible actions that prioritize people, natural resources, and finances to safeguard the health of future generations. With this in mind, we see sustainability as a common vision that helps guide decision-making; it is the framework for building solid strategies that produce long-ranging benefits. Most importantly, sustainability is about people. People in the Johns Hopkins community are the core of the Sustainability Network, and they are the key to success.
