Bear Yuba Land Trust and The Center for the Arts invites the community to a “Back to the Land” Dinner and Gala featuring local food from area farms, 4 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, September 22. The Gala is just before the 11th Annual Stars at North Star House concert featuring Grammy Award winning New Orleans musicians, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint.
Chef Antonio Ayestaran has created a gourmet meal served family style featuring food from conservation landscapes including Nevada County Free Range Beef, The Food Love Project, plus First Rain Farm, Chaffin Family Orchards and more. Sweet Roots Farm will supply fresh cut flowers, Leta’s Blues will perform live music and DeGroots Desserts will create a special sweet to top it off.
This is an opportunity to meet and talk with local Rancher Jim Gates and Farmer Amanda Thibodeau in the beautiful historic North Star House. Come visit friends and support the Land Trust while enjoying micro-brews, local wines and specialty cocktails in the courtyard before dinner is served.
In addition, art lovers can purchase original pieces from some of the finest local artists during an exhibit orchestrated by Alicia Funk – “Inhabit: Art of the Land.” 100 percent of the profits from the art show benefit Bear Yuba Land Trust.
This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for BYLT and supports important work conserving land, building trails and offering nature education for children. Come celebrate community, help preserve local agriculture and listen to some of the greatest music to come from New Orleans.
