Starting at 5:00pm, join our Farm Leadership Team — Mac Mead, Megan Durney, Kim Pace, and Peter Alexanian — in the Pfeiffer Center garden for an evening introduction.
At 6:00pm, we’ll gather on the Main House terrace for biodynamic canapés, followed by a candlelit family-style sit-down dinner featuring biodynamic Montinore Estate wines in Threefold Café’s Main House dining room.
This year’s benefit dinner is the coming-out party for our new initiative, two years in the making, combining the agricultural and educational activities of the Pfeiffer Center and the Fellowship Community’s Duryea Farm. All proceeds benefit the programs and agricultural work of the Pfeiffer Center and Duryea Farm. Join us in celebrating this new incarnation of biodynamic farming and education in our community.
