On September 25, 2011 T’sSpace in collaboration with Farm Lot 59, Beach Greens and 2cc (2nd City Council Art Gallery + Performance Space) are hosting a Local Community Harvest Dinner. This event is designed to celebrate the nourishing organic, local food that farmers, gardeners, chefs and distributers bring to our tables and offer an opportunity to educate and empower our community on the importance of eating and supporting healthy, organic and locally harvested food and products. We hope to provide an opportunity for you to connect with the greater community and with one another in a casual, intimate setting.
We invite you as a Long Beach resident, local organic farmer, community gardener, chef or food provider to join our table. We ask that you bring a vegetarian dish prepared from your harvest or local organic food provider to serve min 8-10 people, a place card describing your dish and where it came from. We also invite you to bring surplus organic produce or products from your harvest to share at the Trading Post (a table for people to exchange their harvests & products like sweet potatoes and jam). We are inviting the community at large to do the same. We want this event to be an experience where people leave feeling empowered to make sustainable choices in their life, form personal relationships with the people who are growing and distributing food here in Long Beach, eat healthy nourishing food and connect to our community. Feel free to bring materials about your farm, garden or services.
We will share this communal meal, potluck style, at the beautiful art gallery and garden, 2cc located at 435 Alamitos, Long Beach on Sunday, September 25th, 6:30 – 8:30pm.
We will be highlighting participants that provide sustainable food to our tables. If you are interested in speaking please let us know. Depending on the number of participants we will at the very least make introductions. Please confirm your participation by September 5th.
