    Event description

    Join us for Brunch on the Farm!

    This is our signature fundraiser event of the year to support our educational programming for youth and adults as well as our pay-what-you-can Farm Market. We are offering tickets on a sliding scale basis so that you can select the level that best works for you to support and allow us to make the event accessible to more people.  


    Chef Demi Unique is a traveling artist and chef, exploring food as an instrument of connection and the places that it holds in the lives of many. Her culinary pursuits, including her plant-focused pop-up series, Masticate, are inspired by her ancestors and eagerness to tell stories. She’s had the privilege of growing up in the kitchen, creating memories with elders that cooked with so much love. From them food became her love language and favorite medium of expression. Having graduated from both the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and the Institute of Culinary Education, she lives where the worlds of art, style and food meet.
