Harvest on the Hooch celebrates the vital connection between the garden and the plate and raises funds for CNC’s Unity Garden and programming. In addition to featuring local restaurants and breweries, the event includes Bluegrass music, farm animals, garden games and tours of the Unity Garden.
The Unity Garden is a quarter-acre urban farm dedicated to growing fresh, organic, natural plants and vegetables to teach local students and parents where their food comes from. Everything harvested from the Unity Garden goes to the North Fulton Community Charities Food Pantry. To date, CNC has donated more than 30 tons of food to North Fulton’s needy families.
As a special treat, VIP guests can experience an intimate and unique private cooking demonstration from a local celebrity chef from noon-1 p.m., before the event. This special event will be held at CNC’s Ben Brady Lakeside Pavilion, on Kingfisher Pond. VIP tickets are $100 each.
With the Harvest on the Hooch farm-to-table event, restaurants, chefs, and breweries from around metro Atlanta converge on CNC’s 127 acres to provide tastings of their own locally-sourced dishes and brews.
