Come to the cauldron Friday November 3rd!
We’re calling it Appalachian Fusion, and we’re excited to be joined by guest chef Eva Beccera, of Dona Eva’s Tamales, cooking up a “Mexi”lachian fusion menu with produce from local farms, inspired by warm flavors from her home country of Mexico. Pozole stew served out of the cauldron, harvest veggie tamales, and sweet corn flan! With a $25 ticket price, it’s a farm to city celebration that you will love attending. Fun, flavorful, affordable, inclusive, for all ages, is what Appalachian Fusion is all about.
Also new, our location moves to the Founders Pavilion. And we’ll be joined musically by the Empty Bottle String Band!
Sponsored by Niswonger Children’s Hospital, TriCon Builders, and Yee-Haw Brewing.
Your meal will again be prepared and served, under the tutelage of Eva Beccera, by volunteers and the Foodtopia Teen Internship core. These teens are recruited from across Washington County to earn paid employment and gain important life skills and employability skills in local food and farmwork, overseen by Sheri Cooper at Topper Academy, thanks to a grant from the Washington County Community Foundation.
Fresh cider and harvest crafts for sale by the Sowing Seeds kids, ages 7-12, who weekly tend the Food Forest on Wilson Avenue, under the care of Shae Keane and Taylor Malone with Build It Up; and handmade tie-dye items for sale by the Topper Academy teens.
As you can see, the fundraiser is a shared community effort. Help us meet our goal of 200+ attendees by inviting your friends and sharing on facebook.
