4:00pm to 7:00pm

Highland Hall Waldorf School is pleased to announce its second annual Farm to Table Community Feast to be held on Saturday, September 20 on the Highland Hall campus in Northridge, California.

This event is part of our school’s ongoing effort to bring awareness to our biodynamic farm program and to encourage community involvement by providing a place to gather and celebrate with the spirit of giving and gratitude.

Highland Hall’s Biodynamic Farm program teaches children and adults about the benefits of natural cycles-planting, harvesting, and composting. "Our Farm to Table Community Feast is an opportunity to share our farm's abundance with the community," says Farm Manager Bridget Kelley.

The school anticipates 250 guests in attendance including representatives from our local city offices, families and alumni from the local Waldorf Schools, and members of the Northridge, Porter Ranch, Chatsworth and surrounding communities.

Our Farm to Table Community Feast is open to everyone. Guests will be treated to a delicious organic dinner served “family style” and prepared on site by Highland Hall alum Chef Reme Loosli from The Heart of Cooking and the Kaplan family from Hugo’s Restaurants. Our community meal will feature freshly harvested produce from our school’s biodynamic farm, locally sourced organic chicken, organic desserts with vegan and gluten free options. Musical entertainment will be provided by the High Strung String Band with hand-clapping, foot-stomping folk tunes from Appalachia and beyond.

Early-bird tickets available now through Sept 12th on the Highland Hall website: www.highlandhall.org : $25/adult $15/child.

Be sure join us for what promises to be an afternoon and evening filled with great food, toe-tapping music, square dancing, games for the children and plenty of fun for the whole family!

The Fab Faux

Valley Performing Arts Center

18111 Nordhoff St, Northridge, CA 91330

8:00pm

“Come Together” for an unforgettable evening with the acclaimed Beatles’ tribute band, known for its painstaking recreations of their iconic songs, and hear them perform one of the greatest albums of all time, Abbey Road, in its entirety!

The Fab Faux have been spoken of as "the greatest Beatles cover band — without the wigs," by Rolling Stone senior editor, David Fricke, who wrote, "the Faux invigorate the artistry of even the Beatles' most intricate studio masterpieces with top chops and Beatlemaniac glee."

Approaching the songs with the intent of playing them live as accurately in musical reading and in spirit as possible, including performing Abbey Road in its entirety, The Faux's breathtaking performances tend to dispel all concert-goers' previous notions of a Beatles tribute act.

Compañía de Café Debuts Monthly Coffee Class Series

Compañía de Café

110 N. Maclay Ave., San Fernando, CA

3:00pm to 4:30pm

On Thursday, September 25, San Fernando’s newest coffee destination, Compañía de Café debuts a monthly coffee class from Director of Coffee Operations Percy Ramirez, taking place from 3-4:30 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month and continuing throughout the year. Capped at six guests total, these intimate classes will focus on the art of coffee cupping—observing the taste and aromas of lightly roasted coffees. Tickets are $10 per person for each 90-minute class. 

During each class, Ramirez will teach attendees how to identify and describe various coffees based on their inherent properties of acidity, bitterness, and sweetness. Guests will sample a selection of coffees from various regions, exploring their different characteristics through a blind taste test in order to eliminate any preconceived notions of how the coffee should taste or smell. At the end of the class the group will select their favorite coffee, which will be brewed for the guests to enjoy.

Ramirez brings a seasoned barista background to these classes, having held stints at Los Angeles’ Intelligentsia and G&B Coffee. He is a frequent competitor at international barista competitions and is celebrated for his signature style of incorporating novel ingredients and a modern flair into his coffee recipes.   

Compañía’s coffee classes serve as part of the cafe’s greater mission: to make high-quality coffee and food accessible to a broader audience, including its often underserved neighborhood in the city of San Fernando. For more information or to sign up for a class, interested parties may call 747.500.7102.
