The Rooted Andina – Community Night 7.25.24

Join us for dinner on the last Thursday of the month for Community Night – an immersive Indigenous dining experience served family-style as the sun sets to give way to the stars and the garden lights flicker on.

Once you have received your welcome beverage, you will be invited on a brief walking tour of our growing space Pachamama5453. This is the home to our pending non-profit Indigenous science education micro-farm. Our front-of-house captain and co-conspirator in P5453, Alejandra, will chat with you about the crops being grown this season, how the community helped us with construction, and our plans for the future.

Once everyone returns to the dining space, Chef Andrea and team will share a bounty of prepared Indigenous ingredients tracing the etymology and culture of key pre-colonial crops. Learn how and why we created our unique Meso Bars.

Elevating Indigenous culture through food and education

This unique knowledge exchange experience is an opportunity to explore Native Indigenous culture through Indigenous science and food. Your host, Andrea Condes, is a transracial adoptee from South America who is reclaiming her own Andean Indigeneity through cooking and farming.

Mission: To create a full cycle system on one plot of land as a way to exhibit Indigenous agriculture, sciences and foodways and facilitate cultural education through immersive food experiences and workshops.

Goal: To create a sustainable and healthy ecosystem utilizing Indigenous knowledge on one plot of land that can then be translated to community members in a safe and cultural space, as to sustain a 12-person gathering space.
