The Art of Farming
Friday, September 10, 2010
I've got four $250 tickets to the Art of Farming cocktail party at Sotheby's in New York on September 23 to give away. For information on the first Tri-State Heirloom Vegetable auction, go to artoffarming.org.
This first-of-its-kind event will celebrate edible heirlooms and the art involved in their creation. The novel concept provides a unique platform for local farmers, purveyors, celebrity chefs, food industry experts and high-profile New Yorkers to join together for a shared interest in the vitality of the Greenmarket and raise important funds for the GrowNYC New Farmer Development Project and The Sylvia Center at Katchkie Farm. The event is supported by leaders and visionaries in the sustainable food and farming movement, including Eric Ripert,Martha Stewart, Bette Midler, Dan Barber, Liz Neumark, and others.
If you want a ticket, leave a comment on this blog. One week from today I'll put all the names in a hat and randomly select four people who will receive the tickets. It's going to be a great event. Good luck!
