The Santa Cruz Heritage Dinner sounds like a fun way to check out some of the different local-food projects going on around town. It's a three-course progressive dinner that starts at an urban farm and finishes at a "restaurant in a historic building," although we're not sure what that restaurant is.
The event - which is conveniently located at locations accessible from a bike path - includes tours, a book-signing, cooking demonstrations and a reusable grocery bag from the Santa Cruz Valley Heritage Association. All that for only $25, or $10 for ages 6 to 10.
There's more on the dinner over here. There are also only 40 tickets left, so if it sounds like your kind of thing you might want to act fast.
