Celebrated Chef and RVGA Board Member John Novi Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

On Sunday June 11th, John Novi– Legendary Master Chef and nationally recognized pioneer in the Farm-to-Table Movement — received the 2017 Distinguished Achievement Award from Mohonk Consultations! It was an incredible event;  a full house and then some. Leave it to John to bring out a warm and connected crowd! And to arrange with Mohonk’s Chef an amazing farm-to-table buffet — locally sourced and lovingly prepared in John’s honor.

In addition, we were moved beyond words to learn that John is generously donating his award money to RVGA. We thank John and Mohonk Consultations, are immensely grateful to all John’s gifts to us and to the community! A founding Board member of RVGA, John has been a tireless advocate for local food and farming and brought so much to RVGA and the entire community.

RVGA proudly salutes John!!
