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


Homestead Modern is proud to announce the third in its series of special dinner events being held this spring and fall titled Homestead Modern Presents: Dining for Mojave Desert Land Trust.

 The next event is set for Saturday, May 25.  Unlike the first two events, which were formal sit-down dinners, the third event will feature a large family-style meal. 

These pop-up, chef-driven 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.

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

The May 25 event will be held at the Gamma Gulch home of Homestead Modern’s founder, Dave McAdam, starting at 5 pm on Saturday, May 25.  Our chef will be Ryan Langsdorf, alumnus of farm-to-table pioneer Chez Panisse of Berkeley and James Beard Award winning Pok Pok of Portland.

Complimentary beer and wine will be offered (along with non-alcoholic beverages for those who prefer).  Vegan and vegetarian options will also be provided.

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.
