UW Farm Hosting “Dig In!” Fun-draiser October 28th
Every year the UW Farm hosts a Farm To Table dinner to celebrate the end of the growing season, share stories, and hear from the seasonal student staff about their experiences, ask for donations, and dine on a delicious menu featuring UW farm Produce.
This year, because we cannot hold a large public in-person event, we are hosting a virtual, live evening event 7pm-8:15pm, Wednesday October 28th with Master of Ceremonies, Eli Wheat, of SkyRoot Farm, UW lecturer in College of the Environment and one of the founders of the UW Farm. Part entertainment, part storytelling, part fundraiser and a fun-draiser!
The webinar event will be live and will feature:
- History of the UW Farm, how the farm first started, how it has weathered the pandemic, and its impact in the community
- A short movie of past student farmers, their experiences at the farm and where they are today
- Cooking demonstration featuring UW farm produce by Seth Fernald of Fare Start, formerly of Novelty Hill-Januik
- A slideshow with beautiful photography, visually documenting farm activities, produce and the growing sites
- Bonus gifts for donating to the farm at ticketing: UW Farm CSA Shares, farm team baseball hat, festive fall tabletop centerpieces, UW Farm dahlia tubers, Limited batch of UW Farm fruit-infused whiskey bottled locally by Heritage Distillery, or Apple Package (Local cider, Uw Farm apples and a pie.)*
- Rules for how you can Instagram-to-Win all week long October 29th-Nov 4th* and view cooking demonstrations by local chefs featuring UW farm produce October 29th-November 4th
