2nd Annual Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust benefit dinner
The Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust is preparing to host a second annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, May 20. Last year, BALT held its very successful first dinner: 220 people sat under the stars enjoying an extraordinary meal prepared by well known Bay Area chefs entirely from East Contra Costa produce, as well as wines from our local vintners.
During the past year, BALT has used the funds raised through the dinner to promote local agriculture and create connections between urban residents and local farmers. BALT is working with local farmers and vintners to begin a regional agricultural marketing project, a farm to school program and to reform County permitting so that farmer can make jams, jellies, wines and olive oil from the fruits and veggies they grow.
BALT's Second Annual Dinner will feature the same caliber of chefs (Eric Tucker from Millineum, Sean Baker from Google,and many more). On May 20 from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m., 300 people will have the opportunity to enjoy extraordinary dishes prepared with local produce and fine local wines at the beautiful Tamayo's Ca'na Vineyard near Brentwood (www.canawine.com). Once again, local farmers will be providing donating their finest "picked-that-day" fruits and vegetables. Some of the Bay Area's finest chefs will volunteer their time and talent to create dishes designed to showcase the unique, extraordinary season and "terroir" of Brentwood.
