Not Your Typical Tea Party

May 22, 2009 § 1 Comment

Yesterday, Food Bank friends gathered for a special Open Plate, our series of events to provide an inside look at hunger relief in Central Texas.  This event marked the official opening of the CAFB Teaching Garden, a project to encourage Partner Agencies to grow fresh, healthy food, and share their knowledge and bounty with the hungry.

Guests enjoyed an assortment of tea sandwiches and sweets by Farmhouse Delivery and painted dedication stones to decorate the garden beds. Justin Estes added to the friendly, casual, garden party vibe with a live acoustic performance.

The event attracted more than 50 guests who participated in informative and engaging talks about square-foot gardening, composting, and the Food Bank’s vision of a well-nourished community.  View photos.

Thank you: Leslie Keller with Sun Microsystems, Dick Pierce with Citizen Gardener, Custom Stone Supply, Farmhouse Delivery, Johnsons Backyard Garden, Sweet Pea with Natural Gardener and  Nile Valley Herbs for your support.
