Bard College is hosting a Farm to Table to Farm fund–raising dinner on Sunday, October 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. All funds raised will be donated to RSK and Taliaferro farms to aid them in their recovery from Hurricane Irene. The meal will be prepared by Michael Bernardo of Cafe Mio, Kevin London of the Farmhouse Restaurant, Culinary Institute of American chefs, and local foodies. Suggested donations will be taken at the door. General admission is $10; $5 for students, farmers, and kids under 12. The dinner is being held in the Multi-Purpose-Room of Bard’s Campus Center. For more information about this event, please contact John-Paul Sliva at 518-798-9874 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dinner features local farm products from Rusty Plough Farm, Upstate Farms, Tivoli Bakery, Kinderhook Farm, Me-oh-My-oh-Pie, Taliaferro Farm, Wright Farm, Migliorelli Farm, RSK Farm, Kesicke Farm, Jennifer Phillips, Mead Orchards, and Ronny Brook Farm. The opening address will be given by Eric Steinman, editor of Edible Hudson Valley.
The fundraiser will benefit RSK and Taliaferro farms, both of which lost the majority of their crops in Irene’s wake; Taliaferro farms lost more than 10 acres of precious topsoil. This event is sponsored by the Bard Center for Civic Engagement.
