The student farmers at John Muir High School’s Muir Ranch will get to show off the fruits—and vegetables—of their labor when the ranch hosts the Your Plate, Our Farm Dinner on Friday night.
The three-acre farm, which is the largest school garden in the San Gabriel Valley, functions as a Consumer Supported Agriculture program and is a Pasadena Educational Foundation-sponsored project to teach kids how to grow food and run a business.
John Muir students have sold Muir Ranch vegetables and flowers at the Altadena Farmers' Market and Pasadena Farmers' Market.
The farm-to-table dinner will benefit Muir Ranch students and the Yes on Prop 37 campaign and will feature Muir Ranch edibles like three varieties of basil and several foods from artisans and growers in the Los Angeles area, such as:
- Tutti Frutti organic tomato caprese bar
- 13 types of Soledad goat cheese
- California island grilled vegetables bar sourced from the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market
- Lindner grass-fed bison bolognaise with heirloom tomato marinara
- Chocolate form ChocoVivo for dessert, paired with Burkart Farms fall fruits
