At last week’s YVSC community meeting Andy Ziegler, head chef for the Steamboat Mountain School (formerly Lowell Whiteman School), reported the school’s Sustainable Agriculture program is nearing completion of its first greenhouse on campus as well as the composting and aquaculture system as well. The first step in the program’s broader plan is to include agriculture and growing culture on campus, that will include an outdoor kitchen and community center, with the mission to put the 160 acres to use for the community, supported by Meg Morris (Head of School) who feels this new focus is very important.
The program’s funding mechanism is through the SAP Suppers – the first of three is coming on Sept 26th, with an Autumn harvest focus with food from Elkstone, Davis Farms, and Yampa Valley Farms. The setting for these dinners is intimate yet informal, with seating limited 48 seats. Tickets are $100 for a 3 courses paired with wine. This year the SAP program is partnering with CMC intern program on these dinners.
