An Edible Evening 2015 says
ESYNOLA's major annual fundraising event, An Edible Evening, will take place on Thursday, March 26, 2015. This fun event, now in its sixth year, has quickly become one of the most anticipated local parties on the spring calendar. It will be held at the lovely Dreamkeeper Garden of Langston Hughes Academy, another one of our K-8 schools, due to renovation happening at Samuel J. Green Charter School this spring.

NEW LOCATION! The Dreamkeeper Garden, 3519 Trafalgar St. (behind the Fair Grounds)

TIME: Patron Party at 6pm, Main Party at 7, and stick around for the Late Wave Party at 9.

You will enjoy seeing Langston Hughes Academy’s interactive seed-to-table food education program site, featuring several resident goats, chickens and rabbits! As always, you can look forward to signature red and white wines from Presqu'ile Winery: a certified sustainable winery with deep Louisiana roots, and the official wine provider for An Edible Evening. The event will also feature specialty cocktails, beer, food from New Orleans' most acclaimed restaurants, and three hours of live music by Social Set, Tuba Skinny, and DJ Brice Nice.

Event Sponsorships, Patron Tickets, and Regular Admission Tickets ($45 til March 24 at 5pm, $60 at the door) are currently available.

All proceeds from this event support ESYNOLA's garden, kitchen, and wellness education programming at five FirstLine Schools by:

Increasing and improving gardening and cooking classes, and nutrition education events across five schoolyard gardens and two teaching kitchens

Increasing the produce grown and distributed to children and families

Improving the physical environmental education space at Langston Hughes, Arthur Ashe and John Dibert at Phillis Wheatley School

Expanding aeroponics-centered programming at Joseph Clark High School

Continuing to collect data that measure the impact of our innovative food education programming.
