Volunteer at Sustain Supper - Farm to Table Dinner at the Farm

Opportunity Details

Cultivating Community 
The Sustain Supper provides an opportunity for the community to come together, enjoy a farm to table organic dinner and listen to inspiring speeches. 
Volunteering at this unique event offers a meaningful experience for volunteers to attend a special evening at the farm and get to know more about our programs. 

The August 24th Sustain Supper will be featuring, Jonathan Franzen, novelist, essayist, journalist, translator, and screenwriter, as the Keynote Speaker.
Jonathan Franzen's great loves are literature and birds, and his most recent book, The End of the End of the Earth is a passionate argument for both. Jonathan has been a frequent visitor to the HGP farm to watch birds. Time magazine has called Franzen the "Great American Novelist" and NY Times referred to his "crackling genius."
