Angel Oak Defenders Plan Potluck Under Ancient Tree

The Lowcountry Open Land Trust this Sunday afternoon is celebrating the Angel Oak with a free fellowship dinner.

Admission to the 1 p.m.-5 p.m. event is free, but attendees are asked to bring a sweet or savory dish to share. According to a release, “the intention is to honor the tree’s legacy as a place of spiritual power, cultural history and unity.”

To reach far-off supporters of the trust’s campaign to purchase 17 acres of rural land surrounding the ancient live oak tree, organizers are encouraging attendees to post pictures of the potluck on Instagram. For more information, visit the trust’s website.

Angel Oak Serves Up Legare Farms Breakfast

For locavores who’d rather spend their Saturday morning enjoying dishes made with homegrown fruits, vegetables, eggs and pork than fussing with raw ingredients at the farmers market, Angel Oak this weekend is hosting a breakfast featuring Legare Farms products.

Breakfasters have their pick of crème brulee French toast with muscadines; eggs with pimento cheese grits and sausage and a country fried steak with sawmill gravy, collards, eggs and biscuits. All three plates cost $12, not including gratuity. For children under 10, a $6 Little Farmer’s plate is available. Breakfast includes a choice of juice, coffee or iced tea; for a $10 supplement, guests can drink all the mimosas they want.

Reserve a spot at Saturday’s 8:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. seating via Eventbrite, or call 556-7525.
