Vancouver, BC | Join us on Thursday, July 6th, for an unforgettable Long Table Dinner set against the stunning backdrop of the schoolyard farm at David Thompson Secondary in South Vancouver. We’ll celebrate the 10th anniversary of Fresh Roots, urban sustainable agriculture and the beauty of early summer – all in support of farm-based learning and leadership for kids and youth across Metro Vancouver.

The evening will begin with an optional cocktail hour at 5:30pm with your choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages accompanied by a grazing table composed of locally produced ingredients and the best of the season’s local harvest. During our cocktail hour guests are encouraged to mingle and wander through the lush schoolyard farm to experience the work of Fresh Roots firsthand at the peak of golden hour. Knowledgeable staff and former youth participants will be on hand to offer farm tours and tell you about their first-hand experiences with Fresh Roots.
