UNIVERSITY FARM CIRCLE 

friendship | enrichment | scholarships

Welcome!

THEN: University Farm Circle was founded in 1914 to bring together the women associated with the University Farm—especially the female staff and faculty wives—to help the young boys at the school.

NOW: You do not need to be associated with the University to be a member. All are welcome!

If you are new to the community or to UFC, we invite you to join any of our Newcomers activities to get acquainted with our area and to meet other women.

For more information, email info@ufcdavis.org.

Join us!

Madison will provide recipes and photographs before the class so that you can assemble your own feast while she prepares fillings, sauces and constructs different styles of wraps.

    • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (PDT)
    • Zoom Meeting

    The Organic Farmer's Market, Farm-to-Fork dining, and the Slow Food Movement stem from the agricultural bounty found in Yolo County. Ann Evans and Georgeanne Brennan were instrumental in getting Yolo County national recognition as a fine producer of organically and sustainably produced food and wine. Yolo County's food, wine and agriculture are now well-recognized as important contributors to the farm-to-table movement, but that wasn't always the case. Join Ann Evans and Georgeanne Brennan for tales of their early and pioneering years of work. Ann Evans wrote the award-winning The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook, started the Village Feast, and served as mayor of Davis, California. Georgeanne Brennan is an award-winning author or many cookbooks, a chef, and a cooking instructor. She is active in the Slow Food Movement and was formerly a co-leader of the Slow Food Yolo Chapter.
