Join us on September 17th for LUSH Valley’s third annual Farm to Table Fundraiser!
Fall in love with the flavours of our valley—the fond, the familiar and the farmers’ favourites.
LUSH Valley’s third annual fundraising event at Amara Farm will take place in two seatings this year: lunch & dinner.
Each seating will start with a farm tour and canapés, followed by a family-style service for tables of eight. Both lunch and dinner will be primarily plant-forward, highlighting the late-summer abundance of our Valley.
The Farm to Table menu will feature local ingredients playing with global street food influence. Guests will enjoy the rich, abundant flavours of the Comox Valley through a series of dishes prepared by LUSH Valley in partnership with the Farmer’s Kitchen Food Truck.
We will be serving handcrafted cocktails and mocktails incorporating seasonal influences, along with beer from Cumberland Brewing Company and cider from Raven’s Moon. This event menu includes ample options for guests who are gluten-intolerant, vegan, and/or dairy-free.
Also available throughout the evening will be our 50/50 raffle and silent auction.
Take in the serenity of Amara Farm, celebrate local food, drink and music while supporting food security programs and advocacy in the Comox Valley. Join us for our 2023 Farm to Table Fundraiser!
