Join us for the Reedsport Chef’s Garden Harvest Lunch, a fundraiser for the Great Garden in Reedsport!
Chefs from 2 local Reedsport restaurants will be taking part in the event and cooking up some unique specialties for people to try! Both chefs have grown organic produce in the Great Garden that will be featured in their dishes. This year, the event will feature:
• Newman Huble of The Schooner Café
• Lauree Serang of Harbor Lights Restaurant
• Tea from the Sourdough Baker in Winchester Bay
The event takes place Sunday, October 7th, from 12 to 2pm. Tickets are $5.00 for the chef’s plate and $1.00 for dessert prepared by the Reedsport Community Charter School Culinary Class and Chef Laura Squglio. In order to encourage recycling and waste reduction, guests are encouraged to bring their own table service to the event and receive a free dessert! Tickets can be purchased at Harbor Lights, Schooner Café, Ace Hardware, or the Sourdough Bakery in Winchester Bay.
Proceeds from the event will directly benefit Reedsport’s Great Garden. The Great Garden offers educational opportunities for children and community members to learn about gardening, nutrition, environmental science and biology. The garden also rents plots to local individuals and families, and also donates produce to the local community. Last year 1,800 pounds of fresh produce were donated to local Reedsport food pantries. This year, the Great Garden was opened to members of the public to learn about gardening and harvest their own produce for free! Over 1,000 pounds of food have already been harvested by local residents.
The Great Garden is a community garden coordinated through Great Afternoons, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action, which offers daycare service in the Reedsport area and provides resources for parents to better support their families and improve their lives.
Oregon Coast Community Action is a non-profit network of programs that help feed, house, warm and educate the communities of the South Coast. For more information on Great Afternoons please call (541) 271-3926 or learn more at www.orcca.us/gahome.html
