Innisfree Farm is an organic farm and educational centre with a ‘food as medicine’ focus. Owned by Thierry Vrain PhD and Chanchal Cabrera, MSc, the 7.5-acre farm is located at 3636 Trent Road just off Royston Road.

The quiet and picturesque farm is home to an internship program where keen and eager students learn about organic farming methods, botanical medicine, and real food. Check out their website at Innisfreefarm.ca.

Joseph Forest, professional chef for the evening and best-selling cookbook author of Cooking Vegetarian and Cooking Vegan, is the Chef-In-Residence at Innisfree Farm. He applies his culinary skill and nutritional knowledge with fresh farm produce and herbs to produce flavour combinations that are tasty, nutritional and medicinal in value.

The farm is an ideal setting for an intimate Earthsave dinner. Come early for a leisurely walk in the gardens or labyrinth. Joseph has put together the following three course dinner for this event:

Appetizer — Innisfree farm greens w/ garlic herb dressing
