Variations on a Table: Jeffrey Inaba Uses Salvaged Materials to Redesign Dinner

What happens when you limit your table designs to what can be built from reclaimed materials in local co-op workshops? (Hint: good things.)

In the Bay Area this weekend? Come along to Hayes Valley Farm between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm tomorrow (Sunday), to enjoy some organic Caffe Vita coffee and Theo chocolate, tour the farm, check out C-Lab's gorgeous table, and hear a few words from Ellen Gustafson. There's a Facebook invitation here, but no RSVP is necessary—Hayes Valley Farm is at 450 Laguna Street (at Fell), and all are welcome.

GOOD is proud to be a partner of the 30 Project: For more information about our goals and plans, see this introduction, "Have Dinner, Change the World" by 30 Project founder Ellen Gustafson, and "Tables to Change the World: An Interview with Michael Hebb."

Creating a Better Food System, One Dinner at a Time

The 30 Project launches in San Francisco with a simple mission: have dinner, change the world.

As often happens when one turns 30, Ellen Gustafson hit the major milestone and realized she wanted to do something more meaningful with her life.
