Highland Hall Waldorf School to Host a Farm-to-Table Community Feast on September 20th, 2014(July 23, 2014)
Northridge, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
Highland Hall Waldorf School is thrilled to announce its second annual "Farm to Table Community Feast" to be held on Saturday, September 20 on the Highland Hall campus in Northridge, California.
This special event is designed to bring awareness to the school's Biodynamic Farm program which teaches children and adults about the benefits of natural cycles-planting, harvesting, and composting. "Biodynamics is based on organics, but goes beyond it," explains Robert Karp, Director of the Biodynamic Association. "It's a holistic approach to agriculture that achieves health of the landscape and soil by working with the farm as a living organism - as a whole, not a series of parts."
Highland Hall's ever-expanding Biodynamic Farm features twenty-four raised garden beds filled with seasonal fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers, a field for row crops, an orchard, a small bee yard, and a flock of chickens--all of which are tended by students under the supervision of farm manager Bridget Kelley. "Our Farm to Table Community Feast is an opportunity to share our farm's abundance with the community," says Kelley. The school expects 250 guests in attendance including members of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust, families and alumni from the local Waldorf Schools, and members from Northridge, Porter Ranch, and Chatsworth communities.
Our Farm to Table Community Feast is open to everyone. Guests will be treated to a delicious organic dinner served family style prepared on site by Highland Hall alum Chef Reme Loosli from the Heart of Cooking and our alumni Kaplan family from Hugos restaurant. Our community meal will feature freshly harvested produce from our schools biodynamic farm and garden, and locally sourced organic chicken.
Musical entertainment will be provided by the High Strung String Band with hand-clapping, foot-stomping folk tunes from Appalachia and beyond.
Advance tickets will be available in mid-August, with a projected price of $25/adult, $15/child available at http://www.highlandhall.org
Be sure join us for what promises to be an afternoon and evening filled with great food, toe-tapping music, square dancing, games for the children and plenty of fun for the whole family.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. For information about sponsoring our event please contact Bari Borsky at bborsky(at)highlandhall(dot)org, 818-349-1394 ext 233.
