Join us to experience an exclusive and unforgettable evening at the second annual Harvest for the Gardens.

This unique outdoor Farm-to-Table dinner celebrates the Gardens’ harvest and local, small farmers. Southwest Florida chefs will prepare culinary creations utilizing fresh local foods that will excite your palate. You will have the opportunity to sample distinctively delicious dishes created especially for this dinner under the Grand Banyan as the sun sets over beautiful Imperial River along with colorful landscaping lighting, rustic decorations, and live local musicians.

This fundraising dinner will benefit the Everglades Wonder Gardens’ camp scholarship program at the Wonder Gardens’ Environmental Learning Center. The Wonder Gardens offers educational programs for students and adults, provides our community’s residents and visitors with opportunities to interact and learn about wildlife and plants. Proceeds of the event will assist in supporting these programs and services.
