A Very Special Mothers' Day Brunch with Suzanne Ashworth
Suzanne Ashworth, owner of West Sacramento’s Del Rio Botanical Farm, will be featured at this very special brunch, which will be held in the beautiful UC Davis Good Life Garden. A passionate seed saver, Ashworth has devoted many years to growing a wide variety of endangered and little-known vegetable varieties. She and her staff evaluate and develop appropriate uses for the varieties to insure their continued existence. Suzanne sells her seeds to seed companies and market farmers, and individuals can access her rare seeds through Seed Savers Exchange. She also offers a very specialized, intriguing CSA box to people interested in unusual vegetables, fruits, and herbs; and supplies beautiful, organic produce to our region’s chefs.

The brunch will feature a number of Suzanne’s esoteric and exotic produce, as well as some of Del Rio’s more recognizable and beloved spring crops. Suzanne will speak about her seed-saving work before brunch, and will share the meal with us. Each attendee will leave with a packet of Suzanne’s seeds and a better understanding of the fragility and beauty of our world’s agriculture.
