Feast in a Basket: a Regenerative Culinary Experience, May 19


Sit back at home and savor an exquisite supper curated by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse as you tune in for a unique culinary experience, presentation, and panel discussion on cultivating a climate-friendly food system.

The Feast Alice Waters has put together is a basket of farmers’ market provisions plus a prepared soup and recipe card, all delivered to your doorstep the day of the event. To complement your enjoyment of this exquisite food, Andy Naja-Riese, CEO of the Agricultural Institute of Marin (AIM), will present the vision for the new Center for Food and Agriculture, which will be home to a world-class, climate-friendly farmers’ market and learning center. He’ll then moderate a discussion panel of luminaries sharing their experience on how to build healthy soils and pastures through organic, sustainable, and regenerative agriculture practices and food production.

Moderator: Andy Naja-Riese, MSPH, CEO of Agricultural Institute of Marin


  • Stephanie and Blake Alexandre, dairy farmers of Alexandre Family Farm, America’s first certified regenerative organic dairy farm.
  • Pablo Munoz Ledo, founder and CEO of Look INTO, a digital story-sharing platform

This is a benefit event to support the new Center for Food and Agriculture. Hosted remotely, this special evening will include provisions from local farms and cheesemakers you may know from AIM Farmers Markets like Oakland’s fabulous Grand Lake Farmers’ Market and those in Hayward and Newark.

The Feast in a Basket is a meal for two, and the basket will be delivered to your door on the day of the event. The cost is $250 (of which $80 is tax deductible). There’s also an array of other donation levels if you would like to support the new Center and simply enjoy the presentation.
