 Thank you, thank you, to our generous community of supporters for a great 2016 event!

We hope you were able to join us on May 21, 2016, 5:00-9:00 pm, to support more farmers on more farmland, growing more sustainable food and fiber for our community! We enjoyed a scrumptious dinner, fantastic local beverages, live music, and abundant auction fun at the beautiful Cascade Club on Redmond Ridge. We were “farm fancy” (that’s tie optional!) and started with a glass or two of delicious Washington wine  from Piccola Cellars and appetizers while browsing the silent auctions and visiting with local farmers. Next, we savored a lovely dinner prepared by Chef Garrett Brown of Garage Restaurant. Folks bid often and bid high on amazing experiences, art, and donated treasures in the live auction, and joined forces with table-mates to secure the top choice of delicacies in a fun dessert dash!

Thank you for raising the paddle for sustainable, local food production! These funds support our Carnation Farmers Market, our Experience Farming Project, our monthly potluck talks and farm tours, our CRAFT program, and our farm-positive policy advocacy. Thank you for your generous contributions supporting our efforts to Re-Seed the Valley!

Dinner, drinks, and a fantastically fun evening were had for $85.
