Students from Edgewood College are putting on a free Earth Dinner. The dinner is providing a healthy and inclusive meal where vegan and vegetarian dishes will be served.
On Friday, April 21, from 12-1:30 p.m. in the Washburn Heritage Room, students from the religious studies class Living Sustainably in a Dominican Studium will be providing the food.
The students’ mission is to use as much local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as possible to create vegan and vegetarian recipes. The dinner is designed to strengthen people’s connection to Earth and to one other.
Nicole Baker, one of the students putting on the dinner, said, “I hope everyone can come and try unique dishes that are earth friendly.”
The Wood’s Edge Hoop House will provide vegetables like greens and herbs. This dinner will be a celebration of local farmers as over 95 percent of Wood’s Edge ingredients are from the Dane County area.
This event will cap off Earth Week festivities and provide information about where food comes from and the history and origin of the recipes.
The event is co-sponsored by Living Sustainably in a Dominican Studium & Wood’s Edge.
