Join us for Monday Night Community Dinners! Everyone is invited for a home-cooked meal, fun, friends, and food you can take home for your own cooking.  Bring your friends and classmates, and meet new people, see what we're cooking and what we have to give away each week. We can't wait to meet you!

The dinners happen every Monday the Institute is open (i.e., not on holidays) from September through May. 

To find out what's for dinner (and what fresh food is available on our weekly farm stand), join our email list here.
