On Tuesday, September 27, 2011, Sotheby’s Auction House will host the second annual Art of Farming event to celebrate edible heirloom vegetables and the art involved in their creation. All proceeds from the event will benefit GrowNYC and The Sylvia Center at Katchkie Farm. Just in time for the fall harvest, this special evening provides a unique platform for local farmers, purveyors, celebrity chefs, food industry experts and philanthropists to join together to support local agriculture and sustainable food practices for all New Yorkers. The highlight of the night will be a live auction of incredible food and drink experiences led by a Sotheby’s auctioneer, as well as ten crates of fresh heirloom vegetables grown especially for the occasion by more than 25 local farmers from the tri-state area. Each crate will be auctioned for $1,000 and the produce will be donated to vital community food programs in the city.
