Educational Events & Community Outreach

Agrarian Adventure develops, sponsors, and participates in collaborative educational food-related events for students and the local community in order to build support for local initiatives to improve the school learning environment. We organize these events alongside youth and reach out to the community to help build participation in our public schools.

Examples from the past include: hosting renowned chef and food activist Alice Waters for a community presentation; sponsoring four annual school garden harvest dinners in which students cultivated, harvested, prepared, and served a family-style dinner to over 120 community and school members featuring school-grown and local foods; and two spring festivals which engaged students in creating and hosting a community event with over 25 local organizational and business sponsors.

In spring 2007 over 100 students worked with a professional chef in classes to prepare locally-grown, fresh, nutritious foods including nori rolls for over 300 community participants!
