East End farmers, winemakers, micro-brewers, and chefs will convene to share their insights into our regional food culture at the Peconic Land Trust’s fifth annual spring lecture series. Laura Donnelly, The Star’s food columnist, will moderate the talks, which will take place at Bridge Gardens, on Mitchell Lane in Bridgehampton, beginning at 2 p.m. on March 4, a Sunday, and then continuing on intermittent Sunday afternoons through the end of April. Tickets are $30 for each lecture or $100 for the full series.
