Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society hosts Schoolyard Harvest Longtable Dinner, July 6

The outdoor culinary experience benefits the organization’s youth programs

Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society

BACK AFTER A three-year pandemic pause, Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society is hosting its Schoolyard Harvest Longtable Dinner on July 6 from 5:30 to 9:30 pm—hopefully. Slower than usual ticket sales to date mean the typically sold-out-in-advance fete might not proceed. The event raises funds for youth programs that empower young people to connect with their community and the food on their plate, learning about nature’s bounty and culinary approaches to it.

Taking place at David Thompson Secondary School, the multicourse sit-down meal is made with ingredients from schoolyard farms and community partners, paired with wine, beer, other beverages (by the likes of Ward’s Cider, Persephone Brewing Company, and Edna’s Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Company). There’s live music, too.

Participating culinary artists include Governor General Award-winning chef Robert Clark and Julian Bond (of Organic Ocean Seafood), Chef TJ Conwi (Ono Vancouver), Fumiko Moreton (Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre), and Derrick Sibayan (Holts Café). It kicks off with a cocktail reception with a grazing table, during which time people can tour the schoolyard farm.
