Vancouver school to offer plein air dining experience

June 1, 2018 by  

Schoolyard farms can help to provide food security for their communities, and a Vancouver dinner will celebrate all they have to offer.

Guests who attend the Fresh Roots Community Harvest Dinner will be treated to a multi-course meal prepared using ingredients sourced from both area school farms and local agricultural operations. Drinks for the evening will be provided courtesy of 33 Acres Brewing, and the event planners hope to bring neighbors together in a spirit of sharing.

While the guests enjoy the food, they will be able to learn more about the benefits that schoolyard plantings can provide. The organizers explained that these range from providing fresh fruits and vegetables to equipping youth with marketable skills and leadership training.

Adult tickets for this occasion start at $125 each, and children’s tickets, which are being sold for $62.50, are available upon request. The whole community is welcome to take part, and a printer can use graphic design and other techniques to produce decorations, invitations, menus, brochures and other items for an event like this.

The School Yard Harvest Dinner has been planned for July 5 starting at 5:30 pm. It will be held at David Thompson Secondary School in its garden, and this is located at 1755 East 55th Avenue. More details about the function can be found by contacting the host through its website.
