Centre opens gates for Feast of Fields

The 19th annual Feast of Fields event tranSports people out of the grocery store and into the fields where food is pro­duc­ed to create a unique, gourmet organic experience.

On Sept. 7 from 1 to 5pm,  Everdale Organic Farm and Environmental Learning Cen­tre will host an organic feast prepared by local  and regional chefs, vint­ners, and brewers. Guests can extend their knowledge of organic food.

Famed chefs will share their delicacies along with their pas­sion for organics with patrons.

Each year a donation is made to an eco­logical group or organization to promote sustainable, organic agriculture. This year’s reci­pient is the Farmer Chef intern program at Everdale. Recent Stratford Chef School graduate Mark Seiling has been selected to  expand his food skills and gain practical organic farming and marketing knowledge. For more in­formation on the farmer chef intern program, visit www.­everdale.org.

Feast of Fields was created in 1989 by Organic Advocates, a non-profit association. Estab­lished by chefs Jamie Kennedy, Michael Stadtlander, and other like-minded professionals,  Or­ganic Advocates is a non-profit organization. 

Tickets are $100, and available by calling 519-859-3609 or by visiting www.feast­of­fields.org. Guests who carpool with at least four people to the event will receive a $25 gift voucher.
