Tickets almost gone for 3rd annual AMI Farm to Table
The third annual Farm to Table at the AMI Urban Farm is set for Saturday, Aug. 12.
The event — which showcases the educational garden on the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind campus — is the result of a partnership between VSDB and the Allegheny Mountain Institute.
"A lot of our students have limited exposure to things, so they may not know what a sweet potato is," said Pat Trice, the Superintendent at VSDB. "First, they get educated about a sweet potato and what it is. Then they start the seedlings in the greenhouse. They're then brought down to the farm."
In addition to food grown in the garden and another AMI farm, the evening will highlight Virginia ciders, craft beer and wines.
"These proceeds will help both of our organizations fulfill our missions," said Sue Erhardt, AMI's Executive Director.
"It has grown every year," said Trice. "In fact, this year, it's been a bigger tent. We've had to increase because the numbers have been growing."
While the window to buy tickets online ended Wednesday night, they can still be purchased at Young True Value Hardware in Staunton through Friday.
