Our Premier Fundraising Event
Savor the spring harvest at Sustainable Table, Explore Ecology’s premier fundraising event. Join us on Saturday, May 25th, 2019 for a farm to table culinary adventure at Tres Vientos Ranch, the beautiful home of Alan and Lisa Parsons. Sustainable Table’s innovative, zero waste menu, created by Chef Clark Staub of Full of Life Foods, will highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local organic farms.
The evening begins with a Farm to Bar Cocktail Hour with Santa Barbara’s favorite bartender Jonny Andrade, owner of POUR SB. Guests will take in the dramatic views of the breathtaking coast and enjoy appetizers provided by Chef Nancy Weiss. Nancy’s secret ingredient? Produce grown by our littlest green thumbs in Explore Ecology School Gardens. Costa Rican singer songwriter MishCatt will perform during the Cocktail Hour.
Guests may choose to attend our special Parsonics Studio Tour and Demo with Alan Parsons and singer songwriter Glen Phillips (limited to 20 participants.) This will be an amazing and intimate experience with one of rock’s most talented and prolific musicians, engineers, and producers. Click Here for more information.
As the sun sets, guests will enjoy a family style farm to table dinner, where they will learn about the farmers, winemakers, and chefs who have nurtured each ingredient. After dinner, Glen Phillips will entertain guests with a musical performance under the stars.
Tantalize your taste buds and learn about the importance of locally grown, ecologically farmed food at Sustainable Table; a celebration of local food and the gifted farmers of our area. We hope that you will join us for this farm feast and inspiring fundraiser.
