The Grow Dat Youth Farm, a 7-acre urban farm in New Orleans founded through a partnership with Tulane University and Tulane City Center, will host the first “Dinner on the Farm” of the fall Saturday (Oct. 9) at 4 p.m.
The series of dinners will be held at the farm, located in City Park (150 Zachary Taylor Dr.) and will feature chefs from various New Orleans restaurant groups. Guest chefs will create three-course meals that incorporate the farm’s produce. Attendees will enjoy cocktails, hor d’oeuvres and a tour of the facility.
Grow Dat’s first farm dinner will feature chefs Martha Wiggins, Ben Thibodeaux, John Bel and Ruby Bloch from Sylvain, Cavan and Meauxbar along with cocktails from Barrel Proof. Tickets for this event are $125 and proceeds benefit Grow Dat’s programming for the upcoming year.
The next Dinner on the Farm is scheduled for Oct. 22 followed by another on Nov. 12.
