Chefs in the Garden

Join us as talented, local chefs dish up seasonal fare during these delicious dinner parties at the Growing Hope Center's urban farm in the heart of Ypsilanti! We had a great time last year, and we hope you'll join us for our 2015 series. With the purchase of your ticket, you'll enjoy an amazing multi-course meal on our picturesque urban farm, paired with great wine, beer, or tasty specialty cocktails. Every event has been a lovely and uniquely memorable experience. Tickets do sell out in advance, so be sure to get yours soon! Proceeds benefit Growing Hope's work to help people improve their lives and communities through gardening and healthy food access.
