40th Birthday Celebration T-Shirts from Chez Panisse

If you live in the Bay Area, then you are probably well aware that Chez Panisse is celebrating its 40th anniversary this weekend. This past week has been a flurry of dinners, interviews, events and celebrations, including the unveiling of these limited edition t-shirts designed by David Byrne, Maria Kalman (shown above), Dave Eggers, Sofia Coppola and Queen Alice herself.

Which one would you choose?

Many of the Chez Panisse celebrations are pricey, with dinners going for up to $2,000 a plate in order to raise funds for the Edible Schoolyard, an organization created by Alice Waters to bring garden and kitchen programming to grade schools across the country. These t-shirts, as well as a few lower priced and even free events, are a more affordable way to participate.

A collaboration between Waters, Levi's and the artists, the t-shirts are 100% organic cotton and come with plantable letter-pressed tags that are embedded with organic herb seeds. (Of course!) They cost $30, with proceeds supporting the Edible Schoolyard Project.

Check out the Levi's website for all five designs and ordering information.
