Our Splendid Table: A Mother Lode Summer Solstice Celebration - Sat June 18

Tickets are on sale now for Mother Lode Harvest’s first Farm-to-Fork dinner on Saturday June 18 at 5:30 pm at  Abbondanza Farm in the Shenandoah Valley.

The Summer Solstice celebration includes a Mediterranean-inspired dinner prepared from  locally-grown foods, music, solstice festivities and a silent auction.

Dinner will feature lamb or vegetarian options. Appetizers, salad and the main course will abound with spring and early summer vegetables from local farms followed by seasonal fruit shortcakes for dessert. Local wines and beer will be available for purchase.

Music by the Amador City All-Star Ukamaniacs will set a lively tone for the evening, as will the vibrant colors of sunflowers, lavender and the Shenandoah Valley views.

The celebration honoring the beginning of summer will include solstice reflections by Elaine Zorbas of Mirabelle Orchard and Vineyard and Daniel D’Agostini of Abbondanza Farm.

The evening concludes with a sing-along of summer songs and a solstice dance at sunset.

This event is a fundraiser to help upgrade the MLH website, the marketing and communication hub for the organization’s farmers, ranchers, bee keepers, candle makers, bakers and customers throughout Amador, Calaveras and other surrounding counties.

Tickets to the event are $35 for MLH members and $40 for non-members and are available online at or call Emily at 530-620-4548 or Michelle at 209-419-2503.
