Join us for an edible conversation between a farm, a chef, and the community.

We are delighted to welcome Community Table back for the 2023 Spring Series. This beloved event brings a renowned chef to our farm to design an ecological meal around our four seasonal rotations (market garden, milpa, fruit forest, cover crops). By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, we give them an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bioregion’s historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.





“A good chef wants to put the best possible ingredient on the plate for their guest, and nothing is better than seasonal local regenerative organic. It’s grown properly, it’s traveling less distance, and it’s more fun!”

Founder of plant-based, zero-waste restaurant chain The Plot, Chef Davin Waite is known for his irreverent innovation with local seasonal ingredients. A frequent speaker and teacher on sustainable cooking, Chef Davin’s menus are a reflection of his ecological advocacy as well as his playful creativity. After launching his culinary career under Ichiban Sushi’s Chef Hiro, Chef Davin went on to launch a series of boundary-pushing eateries in his hometown of Oceanside, including Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub and Shootz Fish x Beer. Thanks to his combination of classic techniques and eclectic artistry, Chef Davin is credited with creating a culinary renaissance that celebrates local and sustainably sourced products.



Community Table dinners are fixed course, family-style meals. As such, we cannot accommodate every dietary restriction. Please email us with any dietary needs.  We will try to accommodate for vegetarian/vegan needs, gluten intolerance, and seafood/shellfish allergies but let us know if there are any specific dietary restrictions for any of your guests.  We will do our best to accommodate anything beyond the 3 listed. If there are any life threatening allergies we recommend emailing before purchasing tickets.

Community Table Dinners begin at 6pm, when we’ll start with drinks and a farm tour. We appreciate timeliness as the dinner is coursed intentionally with just one seating. Dinners typically end around 10pm.

We can offer refunds up to one week before the dinner.  In the case that you need to cancel last minute, we would be happy to work with you to pass along your tickets to friends or family members.
