Ann Arbor Educational Foundation Fundraiser

$100/dinner + t-shirt
$150/dinner & t-shirt + 6pm reception with Ann Arbor Schools Superintendent Todd Roberts

James Beard-nominated Chef Alex Young began Cornman Farms five years ago as a verdant garden of heirloom tomatoes. This year, he’s cultivated crops to yield a cornucopia of heirloom tomatoes, pota­toes, beans, greens and herbs. Cornman Farms is unlike any around because it fo­cuses on heirloom varieties of produce in­cluding growing all strains of Brandywine tomato and beans whose seeds possess a rich, if little known, history.
The Heirloom Harvest Dinner features fall crops gathered from Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, including squash, beets, heirloom housemade sauerkraut and handmade sausage.
Proceeds from the dinner benefit the Ann Arbor Schools Educational Foundation, which provides funds to the Ann Arbor Public Schools with the mission to enrich public education.
