Evan Marks of the Ecology Center

The Ecology Center’s (San Juan Capistrano) ever popular Community Table Dinner series is back on Friday evenings. “Guests enjoy a multicourse dinner prepared by accomplished guest chefs under the stars surrounded by the 28-acre Regenerative Organic Certified™ farm and education center.”

“This intimate, family-style feast brings a rotating list of renowned guest chefs to the farm to design a thoughtful meal utilizing freshly harvested, regenerative organic ingredients sourced from just 250 feet away on the farm.”

“Ingredients harvested are based upon the farm’s four seasonal rotations (market garden, milpa, fruit forest, cover crops). By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, chefs receive an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bioregion’s historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.”

The seasonal “Strawberry U-Pick” is on right now until the 3 acres of strawberries are all harvested.

The Ecology Center’s Founder, Evan Marks, joins us with all the mouthwatering details.

“The Ecology Center is a non-profit 28-acre Regenerative Organic Certified™ farm and education center located in San Juan Capistrano, California that serves as a hub for southern California’s ecological movement. Founded by Evan Marks in 2008, the internationally-renowned organization attracts culinary and creative collaborators from around the world, partnerships with some of the most innovative and sustainable brands, and over 100,000 visitors annually.”

“With a holistic approach that integrates the incubation of the next generation of agricultural, culinary, and educational leaders with the creation of a vibrant community resource and gathering place to inspire all, they are actively building a more abundant future, one that the next generations will be proud to inherit.”
