LAST DAY FOR TICKET SALES IS TODAY FOR THE “HARVEST BYTES” FARM-TO-TABLE DINNER ON OCT 29

- An Elegant Farm to Table Dinner by chefs Charleen Tinley and Jonathan Marks, with meat and vegan options and loads of ferments

Better yet, this fundraiser is to build an Incubator Kitchen at the Clubhou.se in downtown Augusta to support start-up food businesses in our city.
