For the seventh year, we will host our annual benefit to support the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Program’s Growing Minds Program on Thursday, September 24th. For one night only, guests will be offered a 100 percent local menu in addition to Posana’s regular menu. By ordering from the featured menu, diners will be able to support the ASAP with one hundred percent of the proceeds from each menu item going to the Growing Minds Program.
The ‘Growing Minds’ menu will feature ingredients from area farms and purveyors and will highlight ingredients that are at their peak in Western North Carolina this September. Many of our regular purveyors donate ingredients to show their support of the cause; and some will be on hand that evening to greet customers and talk about their farms. Guest will have the flexibility of ordering for either menu.
We continue to host our Growing Minds benefit dinner because we feel this program is so invaluable for both the health and minds of kids, by giving them an appreciation for where food comes from.
ASAP’s Growing Minds Program enriches the education of younger generations by connecting students with local farms. Developing strong relationship with local food and teaching kids the benefit of supporting local growers and producers will help maintain a sustainable, healthy community.
Reservations can be made online or by calling 828-505-3969.
