Homestead Modern is proud to announce a series of special dinners to be held this spring and fall benefiting the Mojave Desert Land Trust.   


The first dinner in the series — which is titled Homestead Modern Presents: Dining for Mojave Desert Land Trust — will be April 27. It is now SOLD OUT.

The second dinner in the series is set for Saturday, May 4, with tickets limited again to just 30 participants.

These pop-up, chef-driven, multi-course dinners offer participants an opportunity to visit noteworthy area homes, meet others who are contributing to the expanding diversity and vibrancy of the High Desert and to experience memorable food and wine (who says there are no fine-dining options in the High Desert!).

Most importantly, all profits from these events will go to support the vital work of the Mojave Desert Land Trust!

The second event will be held at the Gamma Gulch home of Homestead Modern’s founder, Dave McAdam, starting at 4:30 pm on Saturday, May 4.

Our chef will be Ryan Langsdorf, alumnus of farm-to-table pioneer Chez Panisse of Berkeley, California and James Beard Award winning Pok Pok of Portland, Oregon.

Ryan will present five courses highlighting seasonal California produce, along with complimentary natural wines paired with each course. Ryan is able accommodate most restrictions.

As you likely know, the Mojave Desert Land Trust is an incredibly important entity for all of us who love the High Desert. Their mission is to protect the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values. Their vision speaks to what all of us want….dark night skies, clear air and water, broad views and vistas, and an abundance of native plants and animals.


Tickets for the dinner are $150 per person. To book your ticket(s) — and to communicate any food or beverage restrictions — simply go to
