Sustainable farming employs techniques that protect the local environment, public health and animal welfare. Our growers do not use toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, insuring their operations are safe for the river, their workers and their neighbors, and that their produce is safe for everyone. And beyond the ethical and environmental reasons for supporting sustainable farming, such practices improve the soil, producing healthier, tastier food—always a top priority for our chefs!
Proceeds from Chefs for Clearwater will directly benefit a wonderful cause—Clearwater’s hands-on environmental education programs. Your sponsorship and the tickets and auction items you buy will help jump start the education of the Hudson Valley’s next generation of environmental leaders, with scholarships to schools and youth groups in underserved and environmental justice communities.
