Farm to Table Dinner

On September 8th 2016. the Prince William Soil & Water Conservation District is having a Farm to Table fund raising dinner to benefit the Prince William Environmental Excellence Foundation our 501 (c) 3 that supports our children’s, education, and outreach programs. We will hold our inaugural “Farm to Table” dinner that is being sourced and made in Prince William County.

The dinner will be at Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket, Virginia. Starting at 6 p.m. you will have an opportunity to meet our local farmers who are donating and providing the ingredients, learn about the agriculture and viticulture right here in Prince William County. Then all are invited to participate in the wine tasting sponsored by La Grange winery in Haymarket, and tour the newly renovated Manor House at Evergreen Country Club before the gourmet meal prepared by chef, Travis Simmons in the ballroom in the Evergreen Club house.

All profits from this event will go to the Prince William Environmental Excellence Foundation to support our environmental and agricultural education programs including our annual “Farm Field Days” program held every year in October. Since its inception, 27 years ago, Farm Field Days has had more than 28,000 fourth grade students spend the day learning about agriculture (actually seeing farm animals), environmental science and natural resources conservation.

Sponsor tables are also available for $600. If you are unable to join us, you can also donate to Prince William Environmental Excellence Foundation, a 501 (c) 3.
