Is it a passion for doing good? The urge to teach children important life skills? Is it the amazing food? The verdant rural locale? Yes. It’s all of these reasons and more that keep supporters returning each year to The Sylvia Center’s farm-to-table feast at Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, New York. Saturday, July 14th’s fundraising event, the non-profit’s 11th, saw its largest crowd to date. More than 350 people gathered in the gardens and fields to sip cocktails, and then in an enormous tent to dine on a field-fresh meal catered by Great Performances. The founder of Great Performances, Liz Neumark, purchased Katchkie Farm in order to grow her own organic produce to supply the business. She later launched The Sylvia Center in New York City and Columbia County as an extension of both. The Center teaches kids what fresh food is, how it’s grown, and how they can use it to create healthy meals for themselves and those they love. You can see, and make, for yourself the same recipes the kids are learning to love in our Recipes Section.
