A cooking demonstration on how to prepare crepes, children’s outdoor education displays, Barons gift cards and a Santa Rosa Plateau Foundation information booth will all be part of “Santa Rosa Plateau Day” at the Barons Marketplace from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 8 in Wildomar.
The day will kick off the Foundation’s annual membership drive that will culminate in a members-only event featuring a performance by the “Ramona Pageant Players” on Oct. 27 at the Historic Adobes on the Plateau.
Those who visit Barons on Saturday and become a member of the Foundation that day, will receive a Barons gift card and their invitation to the Adobe event.
The day will also include a cooking demonstration between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. by the popular local Mt. San Jacinto Community College culinary instructor Martha Culbertson. A protégé, student and friend of Julia Child, Martha’s culinary expertise and skills have spanned a 40-year period.
Designing and preparing meals for dignitaries during her world travels, combined with her culinary professional experiences, have earned her a reputation.
“If Martha is in charge of the menu, it will be outstanding,” said Ginger Greaves, Executive Director of the Foundation.
Martha will demonstrate the art of preparing delicate and delicious crepes during the demonstration. The crepe recipe will be made available to attendees.
The Santa Rosa Plateau Foundation’s mission is to inspire and motivate children to learn and care about the natural world.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary next year, the Foundation funds unique outdoor and environmental education programs at the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve–serving children in grades 3 – 12 from ten local school districts.
The Foundation pays for bus transportation, curriculum materials, volunteer training and student habitat restoration projects. The Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve is the only ecological property fully bordered in Riverside County and is located at 39400 Clinton Keith Road.
