The Youth Farm Project & Coltivare will host first Cooking Together fundraiser

Join the conversation! The Youth Farm Project and Coltivare Restaurant will host the first-ever Cooking Together fundraiser cooking class on the evening of Saturday June 4th, 2022 from 6p-8:30p in Coltivare’s beautiful teaching kitchen. Coltivare’s head chef Patrick Blackman will guide participants through preparing three dishes of family favorites, chosen from participants’ entries, paired with cocktails and FLX wines.

Conversations are richest in the kitchen and over delicious meals, and Cooking Together nourishes a space for exploring food cultures together, the roots of food justice, and what food sovereignty can mean for each of us and our community.


Participants have the option to share a family recipe at registration. Chef Patrick Blackman will select from shared recipes for the class. Every participant will have the chance to share family recipes during the event. Spaces are limited.

“The idea for Cooking Together came to me while thinking about fundraising that centers reciprocity.  What if while preparing and enjoying delicious local food, we could also share and connect with our community?” said Coralee McNee, member of the Youth Farm Project’s Board of Directors and one of the event organizers.  “Coming together over food and food stories is a sweet way to get to know folks, and I love this as a central part of a fundraiser for The Youth Farm Project.”


Cooking Together is a fundraising series hosted at a variety of restaurants, kitchens, farms, and other venues throughout the year. Each event is uniquely designed with the setting, chef, and guests.
