MEarth’s Seasonal Chef Series dinners are a one-of-a-kind dining experience at the award-winning, 10-acre Hilton Bialek Habitat environmental education center at the mouth of Carmel Valley. Each month, the series features a local chef who will create a seasonal feast for 30 lucky attendees. Guests enjoy produce grown just steps away in the surrounding organic gardens or sourced directly from small farms in our region. Best efforts are made to source all proteins locally and sustainably to ensure the highest quality and minimal impact on the environment.

*Please call or email for special dietary requests. Best efforts are made to accommodate restrictions but no guarantees can be made. info@mearthcarmel.org | (831) 624-1032

We hope you come join us!

All net proceeds from these dinners go directly towards supporting the vital work of MEarth in our community!
