An incredible menu awaits guests of the Natick Community Organic Farm’s 8th Annual Harvest Dinner and Auction on Monday, September 20 at the Wellesley College Club, 727 Washington Street in Wellesley.
Dinner attendees will be able to select from six dinner stations. Local beers will star on the Microbrew Bar, while raw vegetables will take center stage on the local and organic vegan-friendly Wellesley Fresh Raw Bar. Tomato lovers will be in seventh heaven from a rainbow of garden-fresh tomatoes on the Tomato Bar. Wellesley College Club Chefs will cook-to-order mini entrees of local and sustainably caught fish and seafood, humanely-raised meats, and certified-organic vegetables at the From the Sea and From the Land stations. And since no feast would be complete without dessert, the Sugar & Spice with a Touch of Chocolate Bar will satisfy guests’ sweet tooths with tempting treats made of locally harvested fruits and Free Trade chocolate.
Throughout the Harvest Dinner, 200 guests will bid on select auction items, including stays at green inns, gift certificates to local restaurants, green spa packages, and a number of other environmentally friendly and locally made products. Additional items will be auctioned off online September 14 through 21. All item auctions can be found online at www.natickfarm.org
Live music performed by musicians with NCOF roots will entertain guests as they enjoy their meal and bid.
The 8th Annual Harvest Dinner and Silent Green Auction is NCOF’s largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds go to support the Teen Work Summer Program, an apprenticing and mentoring program for teenagers ages fourteen to sixteen. Teens involved in the program gain a wide array of skills including carpentry and mechanics. They are also able to gain a sense of community, independence, and accomplishment, all while earning competitive wages, helping the environment, and forming healthy social relationships with their peers and mentoring adults. Harvest dinner tickets are $70 per person before Labor Day, September 6 and can be purchased from NCOF’s Web site: www.natickfarm.org. Tickets at the door will be $90 per person.
