[email protected], City’s campus farm, held a fundraiser in North Park at the Sea Rocket Bistro on Feb. 21.

With a $15 dollar cover charge, $10 of which went directly to the farm, attendees could grab a seat with fellow supporters and enjoy the many hors d’oeuvres that were served throughout the night. Dorothea Sotiros, farm coordinator, said overall the farm managed to raise $200.

Supporters started gathering at the chic restaurant around 5:30 p.m. and enjoyed several unique and flavorful appetizers including carrot ginger soup shooters, anchovy and kale pesto on sourdough bread and an Italian sausage tapenade on lettuce. All of the vegetables used in the decadent hors d’oeuvres were fresh picked straight from the farm.

The restaurant, located in North Park on the corner of 33rd and Upas Street regularly donates the proceeds from the Spicy Barbecue Seitan dish to the farm.

Their next event will be held March 21 at 10:30 a.m. in Gorton Quad. Chef Ricardo will be preparing the farm’s fresh vegetables for students to try for free.
