An edible conversation between a farm, a chef, and the community.
We are delighted to welcome Community Table back for 2022. This beloved event brings a renowned chef to our farm to design an ecological meal around our four seasonal rotations (market garden, milpa, berries, cover crops). By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, we give them an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bioregion's historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.


Recently distinguished as San Diego's only 2022 James Beard Award nominee, “Best Chef in the West” finalist Anthony Wells has made his name through presenting intimidating ingredients in nostalgic, comforting preparations while pushing the boundaries of the familiar. As sous chef, executive chef, and now culinary director of San Diego’s renowned Juniper & Ivy, Chef Anthony has spent the past eight years developing the restaurant’s relationships with local wild-capture fisheries, environmentally responsible marine aquaculture, and the bioregion’s many small-acreage growers of heirloom, ethnic, and specialty crops. A longtime champion of local and seasonal cooking, Wells brings inventive technique and artful plating to elevate farm-focused cuisine to unprecedented heights.
