Setting our Table Land & Sea Dinner and Auction to benefit Yellow Farmhouse Education Center and Eating with the Ecosystem
June 18 @ 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Food has the tremendous power to bring us together, to ignite conversation and to find common ground. It can also create an emotional connection to spark change. We hope you will join the Yellow Farmhouse Education Center and Eating with the Ecosystem for an unforgettable evening of food and drink with the purpose of helping our organizations build the foundation needed for a sustainable and equitable food system for all.
Three of our region’s best chefs: James Wayman of Nana’s Westerly and Nana’s Bakery and Pizza in Mystic, David Standridge of the Shipwright’s Daughter in Mystic, and Todd Keister of The Café in Westerly have generously donated their time and culinary expertise.
Our collaborative dinner will take place at the Portuguese Holy Ghost Society in Stonington, an organization steeped in the history of the Portuguese fishing community in Southeastern Connecticut.
This dining experience will feature the seasonal bounty of our southern New England land and sea with produce gathered from nearby farms and seafood sustainably sourced from local fisherman.
During dinner there will be a live auction, led by Geraldine Griffin, featuring exclusive food & drink experiences, gifts and artwork, all donated to support the missions of Yellow Farmhouse Education Center and Eating with the Ecosystem.
The Yellow Farmhouse Education Center connects people to each other and to where their food comes from through farm and food-based education.
Eating with the Ecosystem aims to promote a place-based approach to sustaining New England’s wild seafood, through flourishing food webs, healthy habitats, and short, adaptive seafood supply chains.
This event will be held in the open air courtyard so please dress accordingly for a seasonal June evening near the coast. We will be indoors in case of inclement weather.
Due to the limitations of the venue we are regrettably unable to accommodate any alternative menu/allergen requests other than a vegetarian option. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.
