The Growing Experience hosted its 7th Annual Long Beach Farm Dinner Fundraiser. Sponsored by Fourth District Supervisor Don Knabe and the Boeing Company, the event was held at The Growing Experience’s Urban Farm located within HACoLA's Carmelitos Public Housing Development. Event proceeds benefit The Growing Experience’s site operations, and help sustain the educational programs offered to low-income youth in the community.
The Farm Dinner first began in 2010, and has gained popularity over the past several years, with this year’s turnout being the largest to date with over 120 attendees. During the dinner, participating chefs showcased their culinary talents by using seasonal produce grown onsite at The Growing Experience, as well as other local sustainable ingredients to prepare a multi-course meal for attendees to enjoy.
