For Immediate Release: JLMF and SFEE Host “A Moveable Feast”
The Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation and Slow Food East End will host “A Moveable Feast”, an evening of celebration, honoring Joshua Levine and supporting Edible School Gardens on the East End. “A Moveable Feast,” which is now in its seventh year, will take place on April 2, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Dodds & Eder Landscape Design Showroom in Sag Harbor. As a result of this event, the East End of Long Island has grown into one of the largest, most successful school garden programs in the United States, 27 schools in all!
“A Moveable Feast” not only celebrates the legacy of Joshua Levine and supports Edible School Gardens, it is the kick-off of the spring season and the waking up of the earth and our community after a long winter. Everyone is ready for a great party with exceptional food and drink, along with music that will get you up on your feet. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and chat with some of the East End’s best chefs and beverage purveyors, while moving from station to station and feasting on their latest culinary creations, which may include veggies grown in our very own school gardens! See separate document for list of participants as of March 1, 2017.
There will also be a silent auction featuring items donated from local farms, fishermen, restaurants, vineyards and merchants on the East End and beyond.
This year a special block of tickets will be available through March 15, 2017 to teachers and administrators who are part of the Edible School Garden Group on the East End. There will also be an opportunity to sponsor a Farmer, Fisherman or Forager. The donation will allow us to invite and show our appreciation to some of the folks who grow, catch, hunt or gather our magnificent local food. For more details, visit www.slowfoodeastend.org.
Funds raised from this event keep the Edible School Gardens Program flourishing by providing stipends for three Master Farmers and Mini Grants to be used for the purchase of garden tools, supplies and materials. Our mission is to promote good farming practices, education, a sustainable environment and healthy eating for children and their families.
