This edition of The Ecology Center’s popular farm-to-table food event features a custom designed menu by Chef Debra Sims in collaboration with Soledad Goats, highlighting fresh, in season ingredients!
To celebrate the seasonal shift and the abundant harvest it brings, we invite you to enjoy a spring brunch in the garden! Community Table is a unique, farm-to-table dining experience set in the courtyard of The Ecology Center.
It’s a special opportunity to highlight and celebrate local, seasonal, and organic food, plus the local individuals responsible for growing and producing it. By choosing to eat local food, you’re taking action to create a better food system with healthy food, farms, people, and environment.
This special event features a custom designed menu by a renowned chef in collaboration with a local farmer or purveyor. Join us for a family-style supper, drinks, and live music in an outdoor setting amidst Orange County’s only family-run organic farm!
