The Promise of Peace Garden is raising money to fund a new program where youth on probation in Dallas County will receive 12 weeks of unique training in life skills, career pathways and garden-to-table culinary experiences. Dinner will consist of four courses prepared by local celebrity chefs Sharon Van Meter of 3015, Graham Dodds of Hibiscus, Justin Box of 3015, and Ryan Barnett of Green Grocers. The lovely food will be accompanied by lovely wine from Oak Cliff Cellars and guests will walk away with a newly created P.O.P. Garden Rosemary Delight by Dr Sue’s Chocolate.

There will be a giving table where guests can contribute to help us change the lives of young adults who are selected for our program, and who deserve a little help from P.O.P.. We will also mentor them through high school and beyond to higher education. Tickets are $49/person on Eventbrite.

This dinner also commemorates the birthday of Randall Copeland and his contributions to the farm to table movement and his commitment to quality.

Here’s to you Randall!
