Sustain Farm Supper
with Deborah Madison

Homeless Garden Project Farm,
Delaware Avenue & Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz

Join us for our Sustain Supper Series - gourmet dinners hosted at our organic farm!

Our summer dinners focus on sustainability, eating local organic food prepared by exceptional local chefs, listening to engaging talks by renowned speakers, and enjoying the friendship and community.

Deborah Madison is a chef, writer, and founder of San Francisco's celebrated Greens Restaurant. Madison served under Alice Waters at Chez Panisse before founding Greens Restaurant in 1979. She has served as the director of the American Academy in Rome, and co-founded Café Escalera in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The award-winning restaurateur has written more than a dozen cookbooks, including the 1997 classic Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone as well as an updated version of that book produced in 2014. She has received the M.F.K. Fisher Award, the IACP’s Julia Child Cookbook of the Year award, and three James Beard awards.

Madison has been involved with the Slow Food movement in various capacities for more than a decade, serving on the board of the Seed Savers Exchange and co-directing the Monte del Sol Edible Kitchen Garden in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Given her career-long focus on sustainable cooking and eating, she was a natural choice for the Sustain Supper Series.

Proceeds benefit the Homeless Garden Project’s award-winning slate of programs for the local community.

The Homeless Garden Project provides job training, transitional employment and support services to people who are homeless. The programs take place in our 3-acre organic farm and related enterprises.
