Every year, this party gets better and better!  Support Berry Good Food’s local school garden grant program by attending its annual signature “Seeds for the Future” party at the sleek indoor-outdoor venue Julep in Mission Hills, San Diego, on Sunday, August 18, 2024, 4-7pm.

New this year, we will have a format of various “mix and mingle” stations with delicious bites from top local chefs, an array of makers tables with exciting local vendors donating a portion of proceeds to BGF, and an exclusive seated area for VIPs with special tastings, a swag bag, and other perks.  Of course we will have our fantastic auction full of great deals on hotel stays, local restaurants, Baja wine and food excursions, spa certificates, and much more.

We are grateful for an incredible group of chefs joining us this year!

– Roberto Alcocer, Valle, Oceanside (2023 Michelin star)

– William Eick, Matsu, Oceanside (Voted best Japanese restaurant 2022 and 2023, San Diego Magazine)

– Charlie Knowles and Manny Da Luz, Bica, Normal Heights

– Jarrod Moiles, Brickmans at the Lakehouse Resort, San Marcos

– Aidan Owens, Herb and Sea, Encinitas

– Reyna Venegas, Rancho La Puerta, Baja (Michelin recognized, Team Mexico Bocuse d’Or co-manager)

– Davin Waite, Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub and The Plot, Oceanside

We are currently offering Early Bird Pricing at $185 **with limited availability.**  Tickets go up to $200 once they sell out, or by June 19th, whichever comes first.  We are also offering a limited number of VIP tables for 8 people at $2,400 per table.  [We are excited to offer ticketing on the Zeffy platform this year which adds no additional fees, but note that Zeffy gives you an option at checkout to donate to their platform to help keep it 100% free for nonprofits like ours.]

Help Grow a Food Movement with us!  Since 2017, Berry Good Food has awarded more than $90,000 in grants to 36 schools and educational organizations with garden projects that enhance the teaching of agriculture and healthy eating in our shared bio-region of San Diego and northern Baja.  Additionally, these funds have allowed BGF to host 15 chef-led cooking classes serving 275 students, install 42 garden beds on 6 school campuses, lead 40 instructional hours in the classroom, and distribute its signature “Seeds for the Future” bilingual photosynthesis workbook to the community for free.

We are also thrilled to be introducing a new program this year: installing edible gardens at local senior centers and leading classes with residents!
