To create the strongest foundation for taking this renewed vision forward,  Edible San Diego wanted to thank its advertisers—innovative San Diego County entrepreneurs and artisans who share Edible’s mission—at a new kind of event designed to “make a splash,” held on April 2nd at Keys Creek Lavender Farm in Valley Center.

The 8.5 acre farm nestled away in a north county valley served as a quintessential setting for the event. Visiting lavender fields in bloom is something you may expect on a trip to France, but not in your hometown of San Diego, which makes a trip to Keys Creek Farm a unique experience. It is unique local experiences like this that Edible San Diego is eager to tap into and share with its readers

Guests at the celebration wandered the flowering grounds tasting dishes and drinks from Edible San Diego partners: Mendocino Farms, Carnitas Snack Shack, Wild Thyme Catering Company, Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub, Herb N Donuts, The Chocolate Lush, Quigley Fine Wines, Bootstrap Kombucha, and Golden Coast Mead.   

The gorgeous spring day was filled with good food and thoughtful conversation about the bright future of Edible San Diego as well as the future of the local food system. Join in on the conversation here: ediblesandiego.com
