Slow Food Sacramento, a nonprofit dedicated to local food traditions and the knowledge of where food comes from, hosts its fourth annual Urban Ag Fest on Saturday, June 9. It begins at 4 p.m. at Rosemont High School, where attendees can tour the school’s garden and ecology projects and eat from a salad bar with food prepared and grown by students. Tickets for the afternoon event—which ends at 5:30 p.m.—cost $20. At 6 p.m., the Ag Fest continues at Rosemont High School with an open-air three-course dinner. For the cost of $75, attendees can eat a catered meal while enjoying a live auction, raffle and a guest speaker. The entire event is a fundraiser for the Green Academy at Rosemont High School and the O.W. Erlewine Elementary School Garden and Ecology Center. Slow Food Sacramento works in conjunction with these schools on their projects. For more information, visit www.slowfoodsacramento.com.
