Take a journey with me as my hobby grows into a part time business. I will be offering lessons and mistakes on propagating seeds and bulbs for resale. I am growing vegetables in a 2 1/2 acre farm and orchard for CSA boxes, restaurants, and RUSD - Riverside Unified School District.

"Dinners in the Grove" will be held at Fox Farm
The second Grow Riverside "Dinners in the Grove" will be held at the property where my farm is located on May 16th, 2015. The chefs from RUSD (Riverside Unified School District) will be preparing a farm to fork meal utilizing some of my vegetables and other locally sourced food.
The proceeds of the tickets go towards supporting the Grow Riverside Conference in Riverside CA on June 11, 2015.
GrowRIVERSIDE seeks to foster a local food and agriculture system that benefits the community, environment and economy.
We are pleased to announce that the next GrowRIVERSIDE "Dinner in the Grove"will take place on Saturday, May 16. So, if you missed the first dinner, which sold out in a matter of weeks, make sure to register early to reserve your spot:http://dinnersinthegrove.eventbrite.com
And now for the dinner details:
The Nutrition Services team at Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) works tirelessly on a daily basis to provide healthy farm-to-school options to the approximately 43,000 students spread across 31 schools located in the district. But, onSaturday, May 16, under the stars and amidst the groves and fruit trees at Fox Farm / Hapeman Ranch in the City of Riverside, RUSD’s culinary brain trust will focus their attention on just 60 diners lucky enough to claim tickets for the 2nd GrowRIVERSIDE “Dinner in the Grove”.
Bringing the same enthusiasm that they usually reserve for farm-to-school lunches, RUSD’s Nutrition Services team will prepare a farm-to-table meal utilizing locally sourced food from growers across the county as well as from the farm of host and sponsor, Fox Farm / Hapeman Ranch.
The dinner will support the upcoming 2nd Annual GrowRIVERSIDE Conference, celebrate Riverside’s citrus heritage and local produce and the efforts of RUSD Nutrition Services to serve health farm fresh meals to the children of Riverside.
Rodney Taylor and members of the RUSD Nutrition Services team will speak on the importance of local food and farmers to RUSD while Scott Berndt of Fox Farm and Lana Hapeman of Hapeman Ranch will discuss urban farming as well as the importance of preserving farmland in the City of Riverside.
