The Davis Waldorf School, a not-for-profit school for children from preschool to eighth grade, will hold its annual benefit dinner from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, March 15, with a farm-to-fork theme called “Sprouts & Roots.”
This sustainable event will celebrate the bounty of California’s Central Valley in the setting of Woodland’s Heidrick Ag History Center, 1962 Hays Lane, among antique tractors, trucks and other historical agricultural equipment.
Guests will browse silent auction items and museum exhibits, meet local food and wine producers and farmers and sample some of their offerings — including wine tastings from Route 3 Wines (Dunnigan Hills), Bogle Vineyards (Clarksburg) and Jodar Vineyards (Placerville) and appetizer sampling from Capay Valley’s Good Humus Farms.
The dinner will feature a live auction and a locally grown organic meal provided by Capay Valley’s Full Belly Farm with baked goods from Davis’ Upper Crust Baking Company. Guests may stay for live music and contra dancing.
This low-impact, sustainable event will feature re-usable glass mason jars, plates, napkins and cutlery, and decorations will be available for purchase or will be reusable.
Guests are welcome to dress in festive, vintage or themed attire — conjure your favorite farmer, Earth god or goddess, or other farm- or agriculture-themed outfit.
Tickets are $60 general and may be purchased online at www.daviswaldorf.org/auction or by calling 530-753-1651. Tickets should be purchased by March 7.
