Hosted by Friends of Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse. A celebration of local food and nature in a unique urban setting.

Friends of Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse will host the first annual Evening at the Garden.

Chef Jeff Adamek and Pastry Chef Jennifer Templeton will create appetizers using fresh ingredients harvested straight from our garden.

The event will also include locally produced beer and wine. Hans and LeRoy Bach will perform live acoustic guitar jazz of standards and originals. The silent auction will include hand crafted items for the garden as well as gift certificates to area businesses like The Kids’ Table and Julius Meinl.

This family-friendly fundraising event will kick off the first phase of our campaign to develop the new Nature's Playground, a natural play space within the garden, and to improve the infrastructure of the greenhouse. Our goal is to raise enough funds to build an interactive play structure in the Nature's Playground and to install circulation and exhaust fans in the main greenhouse.  But this is just the beginning! We want to build momentum for the ultimate objective of a new greenhouse roof.

These initial projects will significantly improve our youth and adult educational programs and will increase the quality of plants grown for our annual plant sale. Come out for a wonderful evening in the garden and support Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse.  You can be a part of these exciting changes!
