Join us for this one-of-a-kind dining experience at the award-winning, 10-acre Hilton Bialek Habitat environmental education center at the mouth of Carmel Valley. |
Each month, we will feature a local chef who will create a sustainable feast for 30 lucky attendees. Guests will enjoy produce grown just steps away in the surrounding organic gardens or sourced directly from small farms in our region. Best efforts will be made to source all proteins locally & sustainably to ensure the highest quality and minimal impact on the environment.
All net proceeds from these dinners will go directly towards supporting the vital work of MEarth (pronounced Me-Earth) in our community: www.MEarthCarmel.org.
