Celebrating The Bounty of Spring At Nightlife

 

Earl’s Organics helped ring in spring last night at the California Academy of Sciences “Celebrate The Bounty Of Spring” Nightlife event Every Thursday night, music, creatures and cocktails come together for a fun and unique 21+ event.

A group from Earl’s handed out the first of the spring strawberries and tasty bites of carrots to over 1,000 people. Two tables were filled with the bounties of spring including displays of artichokes from Castroville and asparagus from the Salinas Valley.  It was a great chance to connect with the public and explain the role of an organic wholesaler and how food travels from farms to their local grocery store, home delivery service, Co-Op and more. Everyone who stopped by was very engaged with learning more about where their food comes from and its seasonality. People were most surprised that strawberries are a member of the rose family and that asparagus can grow 6-10 inches in a single day.

Earl’s was joined by the experts from UrbanBeeSF, the mixologists at Cocktail Lab,  KQED for screenings of Food Forward and America Revealed, including a discussion on the anthropology of food with Yul Kwon (host of America Revealed, winner of Survivor) and Abeni Ramsey (subject, Food Forward) with music by DJ Sleazemore. The event was a huge success and we hope to be back for more events at the Academy of Sciences.
