Watsonville, CA, August 4, 2014 – On September 20th, 2014 El Pajaro, the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program’s 6th annual farm dinner, will feature local chefs, farmers, artisans and winemakers celebrating the farmers from around the world who have cultivated the abundance grown in the Pajaro Valley. The afternoon will begin with live music accompanying freshly prepared appetizers, a Pajaro Valley Historical Association display and silent auction. After the multi-course wine pairing dinner, the event will culminate with a campfire and dessert overlooking the Pajaro Valley. The children’s cob oven pizza and garden party is a perennial favorite.
“It was so rewarding picking our own food right out of the ground and then cleaning it and eating it,” Dana commented. Why does such a humble act feel so rewarding? Is it because it connects us to the land, and the animals, food, water, and community that sustain us?
Dana is a high school junior who stayed on the farm for three days this spring. She learned how to grow produce, and care for farm animals, how to cook healthy meals, and how to ask the right questions to become a conscious consumer in our local and international food system.
Through LEFDP’s programs local, under served youth build confidence in learning to be active caretakers of themselves, their community and their environment. This is why the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program aims to raise $40,000 through El Pajaro, the September 20th fall fundraising event, to support farm visits, transportation costs, and garden supplies for the 1500 students who will visit Live Earth Farm in 2015.
