Baltimore City Schools Great Kids Farm Dinner

Listen to this article

First, in all my years here in the Baltimore region, I didn’t know that Baltimore City Public Schools owned a farm. They have had this property since the 1950s which was used as a school and a nature center. By 2008, as part of the major school food reform initiative, the Catonsville property was then tagged to become a farm. Great Kids Farm now occupies 33-acres of abundant fields and forest where students are engaged with good food from farm-to-fork and prepares them to lead sustainability efforts in their communities.

The multi-course dinner, Saturday, October 12th from 4 pm to 7 pm at the Great Kids Farm will showcase the farm-fresh food prepared by Baltimore City Public School’s budding culinary professionals under the expert direction of Chef Len King from McCormick. Chef Matt Milani from AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar, Chef Bryce Taylor of Chopped Junior fame, Chef Catina Smith from Just Call Me Chef, and Chef Matt Campbell from Culinary Services Group. The diners will enjoy dinner using fresh local ingredients, including those grown at Great Kids Farm, wine pairings, and live entertainment.

This is a great deal for a Saturday night out; farm-fresh food, libations, live entertainment and free parking for less than $80 per person and it is FOR A GOOD CAUSE! Weather permitting; all will be dining al fresco. Proceeds from the event benefit the experiential education and programs at Great Kids Farm. PURCHASE TICKETS
