Harvest Moon

Friday, Sept. 20, 2019
VIP Reception, 6pm; Dinner, 7pm 
Cleveland Botanical Garden – Geis Terrace

Holden Forests & Gardens is re-imagining a traditional Cleveland Botanical Garden event, Autumn’s Eve, welcoming you to experience the Botanical Garden in a new way. Enjoy a five-course dinner prepared by Cleveland’s top chefs and featuring Green Corps produce. Experience elegant, farm-style seating around the Conway Family Reflecting Pool on the Geis Terrace, with live music and locally brewed beers from the Boss Dog Brewing Co., the Butcher and the Brewer, the Great Lakes Brewing Co. and Platform Beer Co. to enhance the evening. A VIP reception in the Restorative Garden will kick off the evening for sponsors and their guests.

Our featured chefs:

  • Ben Bebenroth, SPICE
  • Chris Hodgson, Driftwood Group
  • Cory Kobrinski, Astoria Cafe and Market
  • Luna Bakery & Cafe
  • Cleveland Botanical Garden’s Bon Appetit

Proceeds from Harvest Moon will go to support Green Corps, HF&G’s urban agricultural work-study program for high school teens. Green Corps teaches leadership and communication skills while bringing fresh produce into inner-city neighborhoods where access to produce may be limited.

Early bird registration ends July 19 or upon sell-out.
