On Saturday, May 20th we welcomed donors, sponsors & volunteers to the farm for our Supporter’s Picnic. It was a lovely sunny day on our little hill, and guests enjoyed a tour of the farm, a visit with the goats and chickens, as well as live music, refreshments, and a farm-fresh picnic at the discovery barn.
The local music group the Fintztones played some rocking tunes and we also had a lovely guest performance from MOSO (artists Morgen & Sofia), two students from the Santa Cruz Montessori.
Our menu included tri-tip and portabella sandwiches with fresh veggies, aioli dip, salad, chips, and quinoa salad; as a dessert we had a homemade strawberry rhubarb crumble with vanilla ice cream.
Our refreshments were provided by East Cliff Brewing, Odonata Wines, and Alfaro Family Vineyards, as well as apple cider from Martinelli’s. Thank you to Live Earth Farm, Marianne’s Ice Cream, Beckman’s Bakery, Pinnacle Farm, Coke Farm, Garden Variety Cheese, Sir Kensington’s, Staff of Life, Shopper’s Corner & Aptos Natural Foods for your contributions to our lunch. Thank you in addition to Mountain Feed & Farm Supply, Ace Hardware in Watsonville, and UCSC Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems.
Most of all, thank you to those of you who attended the event and made it such a lovely afternoon.
