Harvest Lunch Fundraiser For Great Garden in Reedsport

Chefs from two Reedsport restaurants will be taking part in the event and cooking 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 and 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. 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, which 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.
