Event description

Join us for A Night on the Farm!

A Night on the Farm is our signature fundraiser event series to support our educational programming for youth and adults as well as our pay-what-you-can Farm Market. 

Highlighting Ethiopian Cuisine 

Indulge in a culinary journey where each dish is a celebration of tradition, flavor, and community. From fragrant spices to hearty stews and injera, our menu promises to delight your senses and leave you satiated. 

This evening is about more than great food, it's about coming together as a community to support our shared vision of sustainability, food justice, and cultural exchange. Your attendance and generosity will help us continue our mission to sustain and support a more equitable community through growing, learning, cooking, and sharing fresh food together.
