Save the Date! Dine out for Dakota on December 12th
The Urban Homestead Foundation is partnering with West Seattle restaurants on December 12th for a Dine Out event that will help raise money for the purchase of a property located at 50th and Dakota, across the street from Genesee Hill Elementary school.
This property will be the location of the Dakota Homestead and will be developed into a vibrant corner of sustainable green practices and urban agriculture, providing a place to celebrate our natural resources through demonstration gardens, classes and seasonal events.
The space will also serve as a food hub and seed lending library, connecting neighbors with each other and local farmers. In addition, the land will provide a wild space for schools to use as curriculum enrichment in topics such as edible gardening, urban wildlife, seasonal cooking, crafting and home finances.
Junction restaurants have agreed to donate a portion of food sales towards the purchase of this property during the Dine out for Dakota event from 5 to 8pm on December 12th: Great American Diner and Bar, Falafel Salam, Matador, and (Admiral District) Mission Cantina. Enjoy a night out and support these local businesses who are helping the Foundation achieve their goal of preserving the Dakota Homestead forever!
