“Harvesting Our Future”
Slow Food Feast in the
Sonoma Garden Park

12:00 Noon
Saturday, October 13, 2007

The Sonoma Ecology Center (SEC) invites you to join us for a luncheon
and afternoon event celebrating the harvest at our community supported
and organically tended Sonoma Garden Park. Renowned Valley chefs will
be cooking seasonal fare with locally grown produce. This wonderful
autumn event is also designed to introduce awareness and promote the
practices of the Slow Food movement. Slow Food leaders will discuss
how to bring back the enjoyment and celebration of food and
conversation into your home and family meals, while supporting and
maintaining the ecological richness and health of Sonoma Valley. SEC
staff and volunteer docents will lead walks spotlighting educational
features, and current and future plans for the Garden Park. The event
will also feature an exciting silent auction featuring Eco-friendly
themed adventures and experiences, and other items that celebrate the
beauty and bounty of our Sonoma Valley. Don’t miss this very special
day celebrating the Sonoma Ecology Center, the fall harvest from the
Sonoma Garden Park, and the richness of our community and its unique
natural environment!
