The 2nd Annual Garden to Table Fundraiser is back
Saint Louis University's 2nd Annual Garden to Table Fundraiser will be held Friday, September 19th, 2014 from 4:30pm - 7:00pm. This event is an opportunity to raise funds for SLU's on-campus organic teaching garden as well as highlight all of the various garden programs. The fundraiser will feature food prepared by SLU chef-instructors, wine and beer pairings, as well as garden tours, live music, and a silent auction.
The Saint Louis University garden has been fulfilling its mission to improve access to healthy, local foods by providing nutrition and gardening education to the St. Louis community since its establishment in 2002.
The garden serves as a positive learning environment for SLU students and St. Louis community members interested in understanding the principles and practices of organic gardening. Participants gain hands-on experience learning how local and sustainable food production leads to improved food security while setting higher standards of individual health. These lessons inspire participants to incorporate sustainable practices into their personal and professional lives, furthering our garden's commitment to healthy and vibrant communities that support local agriculture.
