Here are some photos from the recent “Sprout to Spoon” dinner, held at the Denver Green School, benefiting Sprout City Farms, Denver’s first nonprofit farm built on unused school property. This one-acre farm provides food for the school cafeteria, hands-on learning and volunteering opportunities, community supported agriculture for 75 families, and offers a weekly farmers market for the community. I was happy to be a part of the dinner, by providing farm-to-table mocktails for some of the courses.
I am a sommelier-turned-farmer, who recently moved to Colorado's Western Slope to become a full-time grower of grapes and maker of wine. My husband, Steve, and I own and live on a vineyard, where we craft high-elevation white wine and rosé under our label, The Storm Cellar. I enjoy freelance writing and photography, and I am currently the cocktail columnist for Colorado's Spoke+Blossom magazine. I love playing with our two cats, gardening, mixing drinks, finding (and sipping!) great sparkling wine, cooking, playing the piano, and hiking.
