Cars-to-Table?

Sustainable Morristown had a busy weekend, starting with an Electric Auto Show on Saturday at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown and culminating on Sunday with the annual Locally Grown Sunday Supper fundraiser at the Hyatt Morristown.

Paul Miller of Sustainable Morristown said he was pleased with the dinner turnout, considering the event was competing against a Climate March that attracted enormous crowds to New York ahead of this week’s United Nations Climate Summit.

  • Criss-crossing the United States on an electric motorcycle will cost you less in fuel than dinner-for-two at a moderately priced restaurant.
  • Electric charging stations are listed in most GPS navigation systems.
  • For truly Revolutionary thirst-quenching, you must try “switchel,” a.k.a. haymaker’s punch, a Colonial favorite made from apple cider vinegar, ginger and maple syrup.

Kevin Duffy of Mendham discovered switchel during a Vermont ski trip, concocted his own recipe, and quit his job selling green energy products to market the stuff under the name of CideRoad.  He says you can find it at GrassRoots in Morristown.
