The Youth Farm at the High School for Public Service, an acre of land in Crown Heights dedicated to educating learners of all ages about organic growing practices, grew a staggering 15,000 pounds of fresh produce in 2013. You may have missed their CSA or their weekly farmers market but fear not: there’s still time to support their fantastic projects before the 2014 season ends.
They’re hosting a Meet Your Maker Dinner next Thursday at 61 Local Public House in Cobble Hill featuring chefs Rob Newton of Nightingale 9, Zahara Tangorra of Brucie, and Andres Valbuena of Martha. Patricia Noto, their farm to school liaison, told Edible that “each chef will use either produce or herbs from the Youth Farm, although since they’re seasonal dishes we won’t know exactly what they’re cooking until right before the event!”
The proceeds from the event will support farm-basked educational programming. Tickets include two drinks and a cheese tasting from Consider Bardwell in addition to tastes of the chefs’ dishes. You’ll also have a chance to participate in a silent auction, because who doesn’t love the rush you get from outbidding your neighbor at the last second? Buy your tickets here.
