Highlights from Sunday, September 18, 2016

We welcomed  the harvest season with the eighth annual Under A Harvest Moon—A Farm-to-Table Dinner on Sunday, September 18, 2016. Chef de Cuisine Cody Hogan of Lidia's Kansas City restaurant, delighted guests with a dinner featuring produce grown in Powell Gardens' own Heartland Harvest Garden. Guests dined under the eaves of the Gardens' Missouri Barn, a unique setting and experience. Ken Millsap and Jay Wilson were this year's event Chairs and Byron and Rosemary Banta were the Honorary Chairs.

Our generous guests and sponsors helped us raise more than $40,000  to benefit youth education programs at Powell Gardens, where children learn firsthand about healthy eating by planting, growing, harvesting and preparing fresh food.
