We are disappointed that we can't gather together for dinner and dancing, but we have created an alternate plan that we hope will make everyone feel comfortable supporting the Foundation from a distance! Make a reservation to pick-up a delicious dinner to-go and join us online, at your convenience, for more information about the project and ways to support us!
Proceeds from the Gala To-Go will fund renovations to the circa 1910 house located on the AMI Farm at Augusta Health. Established in 2018, the Farm provided more than 35,000 pounds of fresh produce in 2019 for patient meals, nutrition programs,
and health and wellness sessions.
The interior will be modified to provide for community-based educational programs. Meeting space will be created for classes and ongoing programs like the Food Farmacy, Diabetes Prevention Program, and other health and wellness educational opportunities. A demonstration kitchen will provide for fresh food and produce preparation, and community education.
Plans also include new landscaping for the exterior. This will allow for new entrances to the farmhouse and the creation of a kitchen garden. The farmhouse, barn and silo were part of the original land purchase that established the Augusta Medical Center in 1992.
