Garden Feast/ 2011 Success!

0

We thank you dearly for your support and celebration of our third annual Green Feast. With a line-up of the the regions most celebrated organic farmers, fisherman, ranchers, winemakers and chefs, last Saturday night was one to remember. During dinner, a live auction raised over $20,000 in support for Gardens For Life, an after-school food and farm program run in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Capistrano Valley.

Among the auction items, was a private multi-course dinner for 12 with wine pairings, donated by Chef Ryan O’Melveny Wilson of Five Crowns Side Door and Bonterra Vineyards and a stay at Montage Laguna Beach. Inspired by the overwhelming generosity in the air, Chefs Justin Monson of St. Roy Chefs Pub/Vine, Rob Wilson of Montage Laguna Beach, Ryan Adams of 370 Common, Pascal Olhats of Pascal, Patrick Glennon of Santa Monica Seafood, and Yves & Elyssa Fournier of Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine also offered private multi-course dinners for auction.

A huge thank you to the purveyors participating in this year’s Green Feast: Santa Monica Seafood, Carlsbad Aqua Farm, MM Livestock, South Coast Farms, Weiser Family Farms, Bonterra Vineyards, Tablas Creek Vineyard, Edward Sellers Vineyard, Soledad Goats Goat Cheese, Portola Coffee Lab, Beach Blossom Honey, Backyard Bees, Drake Family Farms, and Hidden Haven Farms.
