SUNDAY SUPPER ON OCTOBER 9TH
Life runs fast these days. From social media to mashed potatoes, everything is instant.
Yes, we love our smart phones. At the same time, we know how important it is to slow down. Food and tradition can help. That is why Solano Land Trust is excited to celebrate our 30th anniversary at the historic Joyful Ranch with an old-fashioned Sunday Supper on October 9th.
Solano Land Trust is proud to have helped protect this historic ranch forever in partnership with Ethel Hoskins, a descendent of James Madison Pleasants, the man who bought this land around 150 years ago.
"There is value in legacy," says Ethel, who with her sister Jean Hoskins Callison placed 366 acres of the ranch in a conservation agreement when Ethel wanted to stay on the family farm and her sister did not.
"It was truly a godsend," says Ethel of the transaction that preserved the integrity of the ranch for future generations and settled the estate between amicable sisters.
Slow down for slow food
We hope you'll join us at this special place for a traditional Sunday Supper, some foot-tapping live music, and an auction that you won't want to miss. Sit down to a family-style farm dinner served in the historic olive grove adjacent to the Victorian house. Ask Ethel about her family's Sunday suppers as a kid. She remembers them well, especially her mother's homemade ice cream.
These are the kinds of stories that make Solano County special. Put your phone on silent for the afternoon and slowdown to the tune of a place and time in early California. Reserve your seat today!
