Join the Goshen Market Foundation and the Confluence Climate Collaborative for an evening celebrating our region’s local farms.
The night will open with a cash bar and a complimentary selection of light appetizers sourced from local ingredients by Edwardsville’s best chefs.
The night’s feature event will be a screening of the Documentary “Biggest Little Farm” directed by Emmy award winner John Chester. “The Biggest Little Farm” follows a couple and their dog as they try to bring harmony to the land. New York Times reviewer Glenn Kenny wrote “it may revive your wonder at the weird but ultimately awe-inspiring ways in which humans can help nature do its work”.
Following the screening, Cleveland Heath’s new executive chef Alex Henry will lead a panel discussion with local farmers David Ernst of Ernst Family Farms, Michael Turley of Rolling Lawns Farm, and Bobby and Mindy Wolff of Rustic Roots.
Proceeds will benefit the Confluence Climate Collaborative and Goshen Market Foundation’s Diversity in Farming Seed Grants program, which support new farmers in the Metro East.
Appetizers provided by Cleveland Heath, Burgers STL, 222 Artisan Bakery, Queen’s Cuisine, Elsa Zeller, and Toni Oplt.
