Turning the Tables is series of events at Fort Mason that brings key environmental, farming, health, and policy-making figures to the table to discuss critical food and environmental issues. These "working dinners" feature guest speakers, interactive discussions, and cuisine from the area's top chefs.

The premier event on Oct. 26th, "The Perfect Dinner", featured journalist Michael Pollan, (author of The Omnivore's Dilemma) and included veggies grown in Urban Sprouts' gardens! Pollan and others munched on kale and cucumbers grown by students at Excelsior Middle School, June Jordan School for Equity, and MLK Middle School. Pollan is a great advocate for locally grown, organic food and we feel honored to have participated in this event!
