The Directors of the Prince William Environmental Excellence Foundation (Foundation) invite you to a FARM TO TABLE DINNER on September 8 at Evergreen Country Club, Haymarket. Come meet the farmers, greet your neighbors and enjoy an evening of Prince William County grown food and wine.

Prince William County farmers participating are Yankey Farms (yankeyfarms.com/), Evergreen Acres Farm (www.evergreenacres.biz/),  Rainbow Acres Farm (sustainablenova.com/featured-farm-rainbow-acres-farm-nokesville-va/) and Ross Moore Orchard (Manassas). The farmers are providing the food, expertly prepared by Executive Chef Travis Simmons of Evergreen Country Club.

This gathering highlights the rich culture and diversity of Prince William County’s agricultural community. Our farmers are providing their best and freshest fare for your dining pleasure. The evening will begin at 6:00 p. m. with a tour of the historic Evergreen Manor House, followed by a LaGrange Winery tasting at 6:30, and dinner will be served at 7:00.

For reservations or to donate to the foundation contact the District office at 571.379.7514, pwswcd@pwswcd.org, or pay/donate online at pwswcd.org/PW-Environmental-Excellence-Foundation/special-events.html. Ticket prices are $85 a person, $160 a couple, $600 for a table of eight.  Checks may be mailed to 8850 Rixlew Lane, Manassas, VA 20109.

All proceeds support the Foundation’s mission of funding agricultural and environmental education beyond the walls of the classroom, and on-the-ground conservation practices on agricultural lands to preserve water and soil quality for us all. This mission is achieved through educational programs: Farm Field Days, Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs), Arbor Day activities, Water Quality Monitoring, and Adopt-A-Stream, to name a few. Conservation programs include Best Management Practices, Conservation Plans for Nutrient Management and good stewardship practices.  Your support of the Foundation and the community enable us to provide these outreach programs.

The 501(c)3 foundation, founded in 1995, supports natural resources conservation and environmental science education and implementation to citizens of Prince William County (pwswcd.org/prince-william-environmental-excellence-foundation.html).  The Foundation is an affiliate of Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District, a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, created in 1971.
