Canvas Underground just wrapped up an exciting dinner filmed for the Fine Living Network last week — be sure to check out what you missed, including a Slow Jams tasting, sisters rocking out on ukeleles and a tableside carving of geoduck.
We’re pleased to announce our next dinner — to be held in an empty Victorian in West Oakland (spooky!) on Sunday, February 28, and the menu will feature the season’s best produce from local organic farms. There is limited seating for this dinner, so be sure to reserve your seat today by clicking here.
Our Canvas dinner will help benefit Agrariana, an organization that was founded on the mantra “To Rescue for Human Society the Native Values of Rural Life.” Agrariana has hosted events featuring many of the Bay Area’s most dynamic farmers and food artisans, as well as leaders in the sustainable food movement such as Michael Pollan, The Next Iron Chef contestant Nate Appleman, GRUB author Anne Lappe, and Slow Food Nation Director Anya Fernald. Past programs have featured working tours of local farms, a Food and Farming Film Series, Women in Sustainable Agriculture panels, and skills workshops for making sauerkraut, mead, and leather.
Your attendance will support Agrariana’s Spring 2010 programming including a series of authors’ readings and ‘grandmother’ workshops and a campaign to establish a permanent, annual Bay Area Food and Farming Film Festival.
