A change in date due to the antics of Hurricane Matthew did not deter North Florida School of Special Education’s annual Dinner on the Farm from being a sold-out affair.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and a sumptuous dinner prepared by transition and post-graduate students Jan. 29 on the school’s Arlington campus. School Chef Brett Swearingen assisted the students in planning a menu that took advantage of fresh, seasonal vegetables and herbs from the school’s Berry Good Farms.

Live music and the sale of original artwork by the students capped the affair, which raises money to benefit Berry Good Farms as it strives to become a self-sustaining micro-enterprise. The school’s horticulture and culinary arts programs provide meaningful training for North Florida’s students, who may eventually seek careers in related fields.
