“If you patiently plant, cultivate, and prune, a community will bear fruit for years to come.” -Grant Brigham, former executive director of Jones Valley Teaching Farm
When Becky Satterfield first visited the teaching farm at Woodlawn High School that is managed by the Jones Valley Teaching Farm, she was immediately inspired. A long-time community activist and huge believer in giving back, Becky knew she wanted to get involved with this organization.
After some investigating, Becky found out about GATHER – a network of likeminded people who help raise money to support the Good School Food program that was created by JVTF. After having participated for the second year in a row, Becky is determined to continue giving back to the community through such a worthy cause.
“Teaching children the connection from seed to table is so important in all segments of their lives. To me, this is the best way to grow up as a child: touching the dirt, planting seeds, caring for the plant, harvesting the plant, and nourishing the body.” –Becky Satterfield
This year, Satterfield’s Executive Chef Patrick Horn prepared an elegant evening complete with hors d’oeuvres, four courses, and dessert for the patrons while General Manager Kevin Moore meticulously paired a wine specifically to each course.
Certainly a night to remember, please consider giving in any way to the Jones Valley Teaching Farm.
