Back to the Land: Farm-to-Table Dinner, Silent Auction, Crabtree Canyon Celebration in June a Great Success!

Chef Joe Casey prepared a wonderfully delicious meal from ingredients sourced locally (within 100 miles) via Tahoe Food Hub. Check out the menu and the farms from which the ingredients came. Twenty-two participants went home with their favorite auction item.  John Svahn presented an overview of the work of the Truckee Donner Land Trust with special attention to our newly acquired Crabtree Canyon and the Carpenter Valley project. The slides for John’s presentation are available.

Check back soon for a fiscal accounting of the evening.

Heartfelt thanks for each and every one of the ninety-nine participants.  We loved having you with us for the evening.  You make it possible for the Giving Fund to support scholarships and worthy causes within our greater Truckee community.
