Delicious July!

This month, we have two very different, but incredibly delicious ways you can show your support for Growing Hope, & enjoy some great local food while you do so!

On Sunday, July 27, Door to Door Organics will be hosting the Farm to Table Dinner at Seeley Farm to benefit Growing Hope. Local Chef Brad Greenhill will prepare an incredible meal celebrating Michigan's summer bounty & drawing inspiration from the season’s freshest flavors, accompanied by the best of locally crafted Michigan beer & wine.

Learn more at the FB event here. This event is going to be a very special evening you won't forget! Tickets are $99 & available now.
