Join the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust at a lunch event that will Delight the Palate and Nourish the Land, making the connection between the food we adore and the land we love. The featured speaker is Cathal Armstrong, chef of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria.
Chef Armstrong is a leader in local farm-to-table efforts. Restaurant Eve purchases from farms that share his values of quality and sustainability, and showcases the best hand-fed, farm-raised, and organically grown bounty that Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer. The restaurant’s own garden provides herbs and fruits. Everything on the menu has a story and every ingredient is special.
Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry, Basil Gooden will deliver brief remarks.
The event will also recognize dedicated landowners who have ensured that their land–including those with working land that sustain us–is preserved for generations to come.
