1st Annual Community Farm to Table Dinner
5:30-6:30pm Social Hour Followed by Dinner
Held at Mother Lode Fairgrounds- Sierra Building
The three agricultural education teachers at Summerville, Sonora and Don Pedro high school are pleased to announce the 1st annual Farm to Table community dinner, which we be held on Saturday February 18th, 2017. The evening will bring together all aspects of local agriculture in our community as well as highlight the three FFA programs at our local high schools.
“The goal is to celebrate agriculture with wonderful local foods and recognize the county’s success in agriculture and our programs at the high schools” Castongia. The evening will kick of with a social hour followed by opening remarks from Tuolumne County Ag Commissioner, Gary Stockel. The meal will be prepared by the Sonora and Don Pedro Culinary Arts Programs and feature locally grown and prepared foods. Five agricultural businesses will have a booth featuring their products and then the evening will finish with a presentation from the high school FFA programs.
The idea of hosting a farm to table dinner came from Sonora High Ag Teacher, Stacey Ingalls as a way to get all three agriculture programs and our community together. Each high school agriculture program is very unique and has students that are achieving personal, agricultural and academic successes throughout the year. “We are very fortunate to have thriving FFA programs at our local high schools and would like to continue growing.” Castongia
The hope is to see many local community members attend and for the event to expand each year. “Agriculture in our county has a rich tradition and continues to be a driving economic force in our community and we want to all come together to celebrate it.” Tickets are $20.00 each and can be purchased at each high school ag department or by calling 209-768-3727.
