Franklin Park Conservatory's Field to Table
On August 27, 2021, the Franklin Park Conservatory Women’s Board organized the 13th annual Field to Table garden party. Beginning with a cocktail party featuring beverages and hors d’oeuvres from local purveyors, including Land-Grant Brewing Co., Parsons North Brewing Co., Heidelberg Distributing wine, and cocktails from Middle West Spirit and Noble Cut Distillery, guests traveled through the culinary, herb, and fragrance gardens in the Scotts Miracle-Gro Community Garden Campus. Guests then promenaded through Franklin Park to the Grand Mallway for the four-course, seasonal meal prepared by Cameron Mitchell Premier Events. Guiding the 700 attendees along this path were bumblebees from Amazing Giants, following the visual brand and acting as an homage to the importance of pollinators for our food supply and the Conservatory’s mission to protect and promote awareness of bumblebees. Each guest left with a full stomach of local delicacies and a small jar of honey, produced and donated by Honeyrun Farm. The event was held to benefit the Conservatory’s community outreach, education, and access programs.
