COCKTAIL PARTY IN A GARDEN FOR A GREAT CAUSE? YES, PLEASE!

Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending Cocktails for Community at Love is Love Farm in the beautiful Gaia Gardens. This event brought some of Atlanta’s best mixologist together for an incredible evening in support of improving food access in the community. Cocktails served were made using only the best seasonal ingredients and they were amazing!!

In addition to the beautiful cocktails, guest also enjoyed some very tasty bites from Chefs David Bies, Jarrett Steiber, and Allen Suh. We also enjoyed a cheese pairing prepared with Many Fold Farm Cheese and Preserving Place Sweet Onion Confit.

All proceeds of this wonderful event benefited the Community Farmers Markets Double Snap and educational outreach program.
