Local Roots: From Field to Plate

The Community Environmental Council (CEC) and Santa Barbara Earth Day are proud to announce an SB Earth Day First – the Festival’s first ever Farm-to-Table pop-up dinner! This unique event will be an ‘all local’ experience, with only the area’s finest in drinks, fresh farm products, and entertainment featured.

Spring minestrone, farm fresh vegetable platters, artisan cheese and New Vineland sourdough bread are just a few of the highlights of the meal – all paired with Buttonwood Farm Winery’s Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.  Enjoy the music of Adam Phillips as you dine under the stars and connect with ‘your local roots,’ one of this year’s Earth Day themes.
