Attend an Event

Attending an event is one of the most fun ways you can give. Each year, we hold two major fundraising events—the Farm to Table dinner in the fields of Katchkie Farm and the Art of Cooking gala in New York City. Attending events are an opportunity to celebrate our students and supporters while growing future programs. Join us at an event to get involved today!


Fall Harvest Day is Saturday, October 13 at Katchkie Farm

Gather as a community to celebrate the end of the growing season. Make your own pizza in our wood-fired oven with fresh ingredients from the Learning Garden, and enjoy fall festivities for the whole family! To RSVP, please contact Madeleine Fischer:
