DETAILS

Celebrate the Bay Area as we savor a gourmet, farm-to-fork dinner sourced from local farms and ranches from around the region. Join us for this year’s culinary experience designed and prepared by Head Chef Chris Kiyuna of The Perennial, one of the country’s best new restaurants. Soak in the beauty of The Green Room, a Beaux-Arts gem known for its distinctive color, soaring ceiling, and russet tiled loggia overlooking San Francisco City Hall.

Enjoy lively conversation and remarks from our CEO, Jeremy Madsen, exploring the connections between the Bay Area’s spectacular greenbelt and key current issues such as water, food, climate change, and the future of our cities and towns.

Savor the Greenbelt is an annual benefit for Greenbelt Alliance. We defend the region’s natural and agricultural landscapes from development while ensuring neighborhoods within our cities and towns are amazing places for everyone. Read more about our mission.
