Community Table with Chef Jamie Gwen

March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

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.






As a graduate of the world renowned Culinary Institute of America and Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Jamie Gwen leverages her rich experience to create delicious recipes and culinary delights for television and radio audiences around the world. Her holistic approach to cooking and nourishment led her to become a certified sommelier, public speaker, and a 7-time cookbook author. From savory winter panzanella salad to hearty vegetarian black bean chili, Chef Gwen shows how simple can be delicious by marrying traditional flavors in unique ways. We look forward to having her on the farm to share the many flavors of our local bioregion together.



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.
