Watsonville, CA, July 12, 2013 – On September 14th, 2013 Slice, the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program’s 5th annual farm dinner, will feature local chefs, farmers, artisans and winemakers celebrating the abundance grown in the Pajaro Valley. Freshly prepared appetizers will be accompanied by live, acoustic music. After the multi-course wine pairing dinner, the event will culminate with student produced entertainment and dessert in the Espaliered Gala Apple Orchard. This year we are pleased to honor local farmers and producers maintaining the tradition of apple production in the Pajaro Valley.
Esmeralda is a student at Pajaro Valley High School who wants to go to college. For eight weeks this spring she has learned how to secure and hold a job, cook healthy meals, how to be a conscious consumer in our local and international food system, and how to grow food in LEFDP’s education fields. This summer she is back on the farm for her first job.
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 $20,000 through Slice, the September 14th fall fundraising event, to support farm visits, transportation costs, and garden supplies for the 1500 students who will visit Live Earth Farm in 2014.
Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available, as well as early bird ticket prices until July 19th.
