A Good Seed Supper is more than a shared meal, it is an event inviting us to expand our perspectives. To facilitate that, each dinner features an engaging question and a speaker who shares a compelling personal story and insight on a significant topic. The evening is also a celebration of locally sourced food made into a delightful culinary experience. Most of all, a Good Seed Supper gathers us together in meaningful ways to create deeper connection.

February 9, 2019: Signals and Perception
Our hearts hold immense wisdom, so needed in the world at this time. Ancient cultures across the globe, as well as many contemporary indigenous traditions, regard the heart as essential for both consciousness and communication. As is so often the case, modern science is just now catching up to this reality and multiple studies have been published which illustrate that the heart is, in fact, an organ of perception. Herbalist and educator Sophia Rose of La Abeja Herbs and Garden Party joined us for an experiential evening where we rediscovered the power of this connection firsthand and discussed the profound implications of sensing the world from this place in our daily lives.
Menu: +Brassica Wrapped Mushroom and Fermented Wild Onion Dumpling Soup +Slow Roasted Beets with Rose Creme Fraiche. Nettle Powder. Pumpkin Seed Emulsion. Fresh Herbs +Moringa Crusted Fish quick cured in miso. Coconut Pesto. Smoked Root Vegetables. Bitter Greens + Matcha Panna Cotta. Fennel Walnut Crumb. Coconut Ice. Created and executed by integrative Chef Sky Hanka.
December 1, 2018 : The Secret Life of Mushrooms
Daniel Reyes, founder of Myco Alliance in Austin Texas introduced us to the living connectors of all life: mycellium. Mycelium are the rootlike fibers of fungi which grow beneath the surface of the ground, a dense network of nutrient highways for trees and other life forms. Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of mycelium. Daniel explained that all trees (think oxygen making!) have partnered with this underground network and collaborate in mind blowing ways that really show us how EVERYTHING is connected. And we truly are all one.
Menu: + braised pippino & lions mane mushrooms in a nettle broth, 2nd with + lambs quarter linguine with seared eryngii and crispy oyster & goat cheese whip 3rd with + duck confit, crispy mushroom medley bread pudding topped with pickled golden oyster mushrooms and reserved roselle beauty berry purée & herbed creme fresh. 4th with + adaptogenic chocolate tart: red belted polypore & chaga chocolate filling topped with candied ginger and candied shitake mushrooms.
