10th Annual

Garden Gala

 

That's right, folks - the Garden Gala is back, and this year is our 10th Annual! After two years apart, we are so excited to invite the community back into our beautiful open-harvest community garden for an evening of food and drink, music, and a raffle, all to raise money to support the Hub's mission.

Food & Drink

Enjoy tamales from Bivi's, treats from Primally Inspired Eats, baked goods from Frostfall, and beverages from Hopscotch Coffee and Aahaa Chai! Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options will be available. 

For our 21+ guests, drink options also include a garden-inspired cocktail crafted and served by our friends at Cardinal Spirits, an assortment of canned Cardinal cocktails, and beer from Upland Brewery.

Music

Area musicians Amanda Biggs, Christopher Grant, Ben Handel, Gavin Hughes, Ross Martinie Eiler, John Valdez, Maggie Olivo, and Aralyn Olivo have joined forces to present "Piano in the Garden", a live performance celebrating styles ranging from classical to modern!
