Join us for a farm dinner and support youth leadership!

Stay tuned for spring farm dinner dates!


Each farm dinner at Grow Dat dinner begins with a half hour of cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a farm tour focusing on our program, growing practices, and the stunning ecology of our growing site. After the farm tour, guests sit down to a beautiful, locally focused meal paired with wine. Come experience the company of our New Orleans community as we connect to the soil beneath our feet and the delicious food on our plates.
