It’s hard to sum up exactly what role Lucy Senesac plays at Sang Lee Farms in Peconic.

Customers of the certified organic operation might find her selling Romanesco cauliflower and ginger scallion dip at a weekly farmers market. Maybe she’s the one handing out a recipe for potato leek soup to winter CSA members. She certainly can be seen in the fields pulling rows of Korean radishes from the ground before the first frost.

It’s February, which means we are at the point in the year where we’re furthest away from the taste of juicy, ripe heirloom tomatoes and fresh-off-the-grill corn.

It’s hard to sum up exactly what role Lucy Senesac plays at Sang Lee Farms in Peconic.

Customers of the certified organic operation might find her selling Romanesco cauliflower and ginger scallion dip at a weekly farmers market. Maybe she’s the one handing out a recipe for potato leek soup to winter CSA members. She certainly can be seen in the fields pulling rows of Korean radishes from the ground before the first frost.

But Senesac also works with North Fork school gardens, consulting with administrators about what to plant and how to build beds. She has revamped and operated Sang Lee’s Young Farmers Camp, a summer program for 7- to 12-year-olds interested in organic farming, since 2014. She has organized gleaning projects with schools and coordinated donations to the food bank at Island Harvest.

The list goes on. (more…)

KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTO | Lucy Senesac of Porto Bello finished in third place in Sunday morning’s Great Waiter Race in Greenport.

Food and drink servers from several North Fork restaurants and wineries took to the streets of Greenport Sunday morning for the Great Waiter Race to benefit health and wellness activities at Eastern Long Island Hospital.

Sponsored by The Market and Body Armor drinks, the race required waiters to balance a wine glass and a bottle of Body Armor on a tray while they walked as fast as they could from the Opportunity Shop on Main Street, down to Claudio’s dock and over to Front Street, ending in front of The Market.
