Edible Schoolyard New Orleans says
Edible Schoolyard New Orleans' major annual fundraising event, An Edible Evening, will take place on Thursday, April 14, 2016. This fun event, now in its seventh 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.

Join us as we celebrate 10 years of ESYNOLA, a signature program of FirstLine Schools, and honor the service of founders Randy Fertel, Karin Giger, Cathy Pierson, and Tony Recasner.

TICKETS: General admission is $50 till Tuesday, April 12th, and $65 at the door. Tickets available at

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

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 sponsored by Positive Vibrations Foundation.

All proceeds from this event will help ESYNOLA:

- Double the produce grown and distributed to children and families
- Pilot our first garden therapeutics program at Langston Hughes Academy
- Expand STEM for Ashe 3rd and 4th graders in the garden and kitchen, anchored by a new greenhouse and outdoor classroom built this winter
- Add garden-science classes that include water education lessons for elementary students at Phillis Wheatley
- Develop Clark Prep’s culinary, garden and leadership skill-building for high school students, centered around five aeroponics towers
- Document our effective gardening and culinary curricula and events for students and families, so others may replicate our model
- Continue to collect data that measure the impact of our innovative food education programming.
