Locavore Dinner Sept. 14A limited number of tickets are on sale for the Lewisburg Community Garden's second annual Locavore Dinner, slated for Sunday, Sept. 14, at 5 p.m. in the garden, located on the corner of North Water Street and Saint Anthony Street.

The event, which will begin with a live jazz performance and appetizer hour, will include guided tours of the garden. Guests will be seated gardenside to enjoy a delicious locally produced four-course meal.

There will be two dinner options: the omnivore plate features roasted chicken with lime, cilantro, and cumin marinade served on a bed of roasted potato with pico de gallo; the vegan plate features vegan farrotto with roasted organic beets served with seasonal garden vegetables.

Tickets are $50 each and available for purchase at Cafe Stream, 428 Market St., or The Mercantile, 319 Market St., in downtown Lewisburg.  

All proceeds from the event will go to the Lewisburg Community Garden.

A joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, the garden features 41 individual rental spaces as well as an 8,000-square foot community plot worked by student and community volunteers to provide produce for local hot meal programs and other food programs.

All produce grown in the community plot is donated to local food security programs. Last season the garden donated more than 2,500 lbs. of produce to hungry members of the community. The garden also hosts free summer camp opportunities for local children and free educational workshops for adults.

Sponsors of the event include Landis Poultry, Fero Winery, West Branch Rental, Briar Patch Farm, Cow-A-Hen Farm, and Parkhurst Dining.
