The inaugural Fresh from the Garden event last year will go down in the history of the Garden as simply spectacular. The atmosphere, comradery, and beautiful garden setting was only topped by the delightful dinner prepared by Chef James Boyce, who will return to cater Fresh From the Garden this year.
