To benefit the organization’s educational outreach programs, Wellspring Organic Farm and Education Center will hold its 10th annual Taste of Wellspring fundraiser from 5 to 9 p.m., August 13, at Engine Company No. 3 restaurant—the latest endeavor of Chef Peter Sandroni, of La Merenda.
Chefs from the Milwaukee area will tap their creativity to serve up gourmet dishes featuring Wellspring’s organic produce. The event will also feature live music, a silent auction and a raffle. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about and support the unique educational programing offered by Wellspring, including Farm to School, school garden support and educational experiences on the farm, for a true farm-to-table experience.

Since 1982, its programs have included wellness, ecology and gardening, the arts and personal growth.
