An Adventure in Sustainability

Sunset Magazine's One-Block Party Contest

Earlier this year, Sunset Magazine launched a contest inviting anyone, anywhere in the country, to grow, raise and forage for all the makings to throw their own end-of-summer feast—with the help of neighbors and friends. The prize? $500 and a starring role in an upcoming issue of Sunset Magazine.

Ten final teams were chosen, one of which "The Beach Tractors" is a group of young families (and Picking Daisies Customers!) living here in Morro Bay, California. 

The ambitious Beach Tractors actually planned and held two feasts at the end of August.... One for the adults which took place on a lovely motor yacht, The Papagallo II

And one for the children which took place in the very same yard the kids had planted their own edible garden.

On October 2, at Sunset's Savor the Central Coast food and wine event taking place in Santa Margarita, CA, the winner will be announced, and you know who we will be rooting for!

The Beach Tractors kept a blog of their adventures, and you can read it right here.
Sunset Magazine also chronicled the adventures of all the teams in a blog that you can read here.

Picking Daisies thanks the Beach Tractors for sharing such wonderful photos and inspiration with us, for being such lovely friends and customers, and for letting our napkins be a part of your memorable event!
