If I weren’t in New York, thinking about all the things I want to do and eat but can’t because of my kids — um, I mean having an AWESOME time running around the city with the boys — I’d be going to this event in L.A. on Saturday, November 20th from 5 to 8 p.m. That’s when the Garden School Foundation throws its annual Harvest Moon Fundraiser at the Barn Studio of Nancy Goslee Power & Associates at 1600 Stanford Street in Santa Monica.
All funds raised help support the non-profit organization’s interdisciplinary garden-based learning program in its “outdoor living classrooms.” Some day I’ll get around to spending time at a workday in the 24th Street Elementary School garden in West Adams (although my gardening skills leave much to be desired, save for my herb garden which does pretty well). Anyway, tickets cost $35, which includes a performance by the Silver Lake Chorus, food by Canelé, and an auction. I LOVE a good charity auction. On the list of covetable items is a pie seminar with Evan Kleiman, a private dinner for 22 at Mozza’s Scuola di Pizza, a selection of Wagyu from the Lone Mountain Cattle Co., a tour for six of the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market with the fantastic Amelia Saltsman followed by lunch, among other tasty goodies that benefit this amazing organization.
