Upcoming Fall Dinner Series

Join us for an evening of celebration in support of Grow Dat Youth Farm as the young leaders in our program begin their journey to grow 20,000 pounds of food for their community this year.

Dinner on the Farm at a Glance

Our first farm dinner on May 7, 2016, in partnership with the Link Stryjewski Foundation was a huge success! The event sold out, and community members came out in support of the youth working at Grow Dat to grow food for their community. Guests enjoyed a locally focused three-course meal crafted by award-winning chef Ryan Prewitt of Peche Restaurant and Stephen Strejewski of Cochon and Cochon Butcher. The weather was perfect, and we all spent a magical evening together on the farm!

Many thanks to the Link Stryjewski Foundation for generously donating their time, talent, and delicious fare for the dinner! And thanks also to community members for their generous support.
