Farm to table


I've always been amazed at the food we have access to, simply because of our location. Right now, you can eat carrots, chard and spinach straight from local fields. I had an orange today plucked from a friend's yard, and made a salad dressing with the lemon from a tree down the street.

Learn about some of the local farmers who have dedicated their lives to this idea of sustainability. On Wednesday, the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op will sponsor the first of a quarterly event series focusing on issues of healthy lifestyles and the environment. There will be farmers from most of the notable organic farms in the area, as well as an organic supper and winetasting preceding the event.

What: A panel of organic farmers
Where: Sierra 2 Center Theatre, 2791 24th St., Sacramento
When: 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.; Wednesday, Feb. 25
Cost: $15 adults; $5 for children younger than 12; available for purchase at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op
More info: A $10 per person supper will be held at 6 p.m. with wines costing $1 per taste
