The Outstanding team gathered in the front yard of Outstanding in the Field founder Jim Denevan on July 4th for a ''we are outta here'' celebration. Outstanding staff past and present enjoyed a local foods feast: Fog Line Farm chicken and veggies, H & H Fresh Fish sardines and white sea bass, sheep's cheese from Rebecca King at the Westside Santa Cruz farmers market, some left over wines from previous events (Stag's Leap, Cline Cellars, Bonny Doon Vineyard) and a few herbs from Jim's yard. A great send-off party!
