Join us for an Evening of Local Foods Tapas and a Café Concert Featuring Favorite Ithaca Artists
On Saturday October 17th join the Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming for an autumn evening affair featuring local foods tapas, Finger Lakes wine, and fresh-pressed cider along with a ‘café concert’ where you can enjoy desserts, coffee, and tea while listening to some of Ithaca’s favorite singer-songwriters. Proceeds from this event, held at the EcoVillage Common House on Rachel Carson Way in Ithaca, NY will benefit the educational programs of both Groundswell and its parent organization, the EcoVillage Center for Sustainability Education.
The evening kicks off at 5:00pm with a tour of the EcoVillage co-housing community and West Haven Farm, followed by a reception featuring tapas crafted from food grown at West Haven farm and other local farms as well as wine produced on the shores of Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. During the reception, meet the farmers and educators involved in Groundswell and the Center for Sustainability Education and learn more about how you can tap into these efforts in the local community.
Beginning at 7:00pm, enjoy a café-style concert, showcasing singer-songwriters Patti Witten and Jody Kessler, acoustic duo “Littlewheel,” and – reuniting for the first time in 25 years– “Lorelei,” featuring the stunning vocal harmonies of Kessler, Witten and Groundswell Center Director Joanna Green. Ticket prices begin at $30.00 for the tour and reception, $25.00 for the café concert, and for the entire evening, a special price of $45.00.
