    Philadelphia’s Iron Chef Jose Garces is opening up his Bucks County farm to the public for the first time Saturday with the hope of educating the public about agriculture.

    In an effort to drive folks back to the root of where their food comes from, Garces and wife Beatriz will be hosting the Garces Foundation Summer Barbecue, a ticketed, public event at their private home and farm, Luna Farms in Ottsville, Pa.

    “It’s a way to bring Philadelphians out to the farm and get a firsthand glimpse of the way we’re approaching agriculture,” Garces said, “and how we’re using it to improve our community and teach lessons.”

    This isn’t an effort to teach people about the farm-to-table movement, however, because Garces said people are already knowledgeable about it. Instead, this event will be held in order to help children – inner-city kids, specifically – about the importance of where food comes from. Read more about this story on PBJ.com.
