    The Youth Garden Project announces its first Garden Dinner fundraiser of the season. A Garden Dinner is a rich, delicious and unique experience for each attendee, according to the YGP.

    “Guest chefs volunteer to prepare a four-course meal using fresh garden produce. Diners are seated throughout the garden and can choose to sit at a private or long communal table and enjoy their locally grown meal in the midst of the garden’s beauty,” according to YGP.

    July’s dinner is being prepared by Craig Saleeby, pit master and owner of Spitfire Smokehouse. Saleeby grew up in North Carolina and will bring his barbecue skills to the garden, combining them with garden fresh dishes made from ingredients sourced from YGP and other local growers.

    The event will take place at 7 p.m. July 20 at the Youth Garden Project, 530 South 400 East.

    Tickets for this multi-course meal are $50 per person. All proceeds from this event directly benefit YGP youth and community programs.

    Reservations are required and space is limited, so secure a spot today at www.youthgardenproject.org/gardendinner or call the YGP office at 435-259-2326 to make a reservation. For more information contact Community Programs Coordinator Abby Meyer at community@youthgardenproject.org.
