A few lucky diners, those who have an "X" under their name card, will also leave with a bouquet of farm flowers from the table. "The Supper Club is an ideal solution for Weston, which does not have a formal restaurant in the center of town. Once a month, my wife and I will invite a few couples to dine locally with us at the Supper Club, introducing them to Land's Sake," says John Marchiony, an ex- Board member of the farm. Because the space is limited to 40 diners, the dinners fill quickly. "From the start, the Supper Club was popular. During the first year, it was mostly guests of Lee's and Hunt's families as well as some key sup- porters, such as myself," remembers Marchiony. 172 "Today, approximately 50 percent of the people who attend have been before, 25 percent are invited by a friend, and 25 percent are Land's Sake members who are trying it for the first time," says Ed Barker, Land's Sake's new executive director who started last June. "This is one of our key ways to introduce new people to Land's Sake. People who have school-age children are exposed to the farm through school activities for their kids, but this is a means for those without children to experience Land's Sake. " "We promote the Supper Club through our newsletter, but most importantly through word of mouth. A couple attends one month, enjoys the experience, and then decides to invite another couple to join them the next month," explains Barker.
