Come celebrate the bounty of Boundary County at the annual fundraising Farm to Table dinner for GROW on Saturday, September 22! The dinner, which is held at Boundary County Fairgrounds, begins with a social hour at 6pm. Two drinks are included with your ticket price.

Featured local food will include local organic produce from the GROW Community Garden as well as flowers, beer, organic beef, flour, fruit and more from local suppliers across the county. This community celebration will feature an abundance of delicious food, great company, and a silent auction. Just 75 tickets will be sold, so buy your tickets early!

All proceeds from the dinner are used for operating expenses at the GROW Community Garden.

One hundred guests joined GROW! for the first Farm to Table Local Gourmet Feast, a fundraiser for the organization to cover operating costs of the local community garden, held on October 15, 2016, at the Boundary County Fairgrounds. Community response was terrific, with an outpouring of locally produced food, flowers, decorations and donations for the raffle and silent auction. The five-course meal began with hummus from local chickpeas, a lamb meatball appetizer, poppers with homemade local goat cheese, and homemade pizza with carmelized onions, pears, and cheese. The soup was made with local tomatoes and roasted peppers. A fresh green salad featured baby greens from the GROW garden, local dried cherries, and cheese made from local Jersey milk. The main course included baron of beef, roasted beets, homemade breads, herbed carrots, and ratatouille. Three dessert offerings featured local fruit, including blueberries, cherries and apples. Farm to Market Grains supplied flour for the baked goods. Kootenai River Brewing Company brought two pony kegs of local beer. BeeHaven Farm supplied table decorations. Other suppliers included Red Rooster Coffee, Clear Skies Sheep Company, Bella’s Barr, Cow Creek Blueberry Farm, Far North Deli, Frog Hollow Farmstead, Happy Girl Eggs, Harlan Mountain Farms, Heart Rock Wines, Kootenai Valley Ranch, Kootenai Valley Juice, Mandy’s Gift Gallery, Paradise Farms, Pend Oreille Winery, Solstice Farms, Under the Sun, Annie Pflueger Photography, Backstreet Market (now The Nest), Bonners Books, Home Depot, Ivano’s Restaurant, Jerry Pavia Photography, Keep in Touch Massage, Loaf and Ladle Restaurant, Love Light Creamery & Grill, Mi Pueblo, Minime Alpaca Ranch, Mugsy’s Bar & Grill, Schweitzer Ski Resort, Soulshine, Steve Jamsa Photography, Yaak Valley Logworks, and Yoder’s Market.
