Farm to Table Dinner Sold OUt!

Sunday, September 24

 

Our K-12 Christian school, Redwood Adventist Academy, is hosting a Farm-to-Table Dinner and Auction on September 24th, which features acclaimed chef, Rodrigo Mendoza of Healdsburg’s Kitchen 335.

Kitchen 335 is being featured in numerous magazines and other media and is partnering with our school’s agriculture program to highlight the incredibly valuable opportunities our program provides to the community and the students. We are requesting donations from local businesses to help fund our ground-breaking program and educational offerings. We will be auctioning exciting packages and would appreciate donations.

Our AMAZING agriculture program teaches students how to grow their own food and they help run our 8-acre on-site farm business that sells to local high-end restaurants. This farm is just one of the many amazing programs at Redwood

Adventist Academy, including excellent academics, regular community service and so much more. We are a non-profit organization (501c3), and will provide a tax-deductible receipt for all donations.

What's Up FArm

 

In 2013, on land leased from Redwood Adventist Academy, What's Up Farm opened for business and quickly gained a reputation amongst local chefs and markets for growing high quality produce and providing friendly service at its well-stocked farm stand.

After three successful years in business, Farmer Joby expanded his impact by creating an agricultural program as part of RAA's curriculum.  Students are blessed with the opportunity for enhanced learning in this unique outdoor learning laboratory.

Pacific Union College graduate, Joby Oft, is the farm and program manager of RAA's What's Up Farm.  His love of farming has taken him all over the world, farming both commercially and in market gardens.  He now brings his passion and expertise to this unique and valued program.

Whats Up Farm is a fully functioning farm and garden business combined with a robust, educational curriculum and hands-on, real-world learning.

New TOMATOES sproutin'

THIS WEEK

What's Up Farm is keeping all of our students and staff busy picking tomatoes this week!  We have over 20 varieties of tomatoes and they are in full splendor this week!  While most of the county has lost a good share of their tomato crop, ours are going strong!  Come and get them today!

FLOWER POWER

A Student's Own Business Design!

Talk about initiative! One of our very own students wanted to start a business and saw her opportunity when the farm received some flower seeds as a donation.  She went to work, using every spare moment at lunch, before and after school, and planted the seeds which have now bloomed into the most beautiful flower garden!  Her business sells bouquets at our local farmstand and also to businesses and restaurants.  Come and check out this girl's beautiful business idea!

Volunteering can make your day (& ours)!

Bilateral blessings!

We have begun our volunteer program and the feedback so far is that working in the garden is a blessing to all concerned!  Several community friends and neighbors came this week to help pick produce at 7am and all left thanking us for the opportunity!  It was so much more positive than we ever imagined!  One volunteer greeted me with "This is exactly what I needed....some peacefulness in nature!"  Volunteers are welcome and encouraged!  Picking begins at 7am Mon-Fri & Sun and Farm Stand setup and sales is from 9-5 Mon-Fri and 9-3 on Sunday. 

If you are interested in volunteering personally or as a company, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Laurie Wood, as (707) 529-4880.
