Welcome to the Quarry Veggie Box week 11!

  

  

  

  

Mark your calendars for September 7 at 5:30 pm for The Quarry Farm-To-Table Dinner featuring Chef Naomi Singh who will create a four course Indian feast featuring Quarry Farm ingredients.  In fact, Naomi is creating two feasts since you must choose between the vegetarian and the chicken option. Here are the menus.

Wine, beer, cider and non-alcoholic beverages can be purchased at the dinner. Proceeds from the feast will support the cold storage facility at The Root, our new food/farm security building which is almost complete.


Tickets are $75.00 person and are on sale at www.plantofarm.org. You can also read more about The Root and other activities of the Salt Spring Agricultural Alliance at this site. This is the first Alliance farm to table dinner that truly embraces another cuisine. It opens a new door on farm to table dining. Come meet Daria Zovi, owner of The Quarry Farm, and her troop of trusty, hard-working gardeners. Enjoy a farm tour, some live music and then sit down to this sumptuous feast served right above the gardens. Questions? Please email at us info@thequarryfarm.ca. Don’t delay!
