The  perfect backdrop for your next event…

Our renovated Victorian house, commercial kitchen and urban farm offer an inspiring setting for work or play, special celebrations and interactive farm-to-table experiences like no other. Right in the city, convenient to both downtown and the airport, yet you’ll feel transported miles away.

You and your guests receive full access to our beautiful events room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, along with outdoor patio and lounge areas. We can seat up to 40 people in the events room, and another 35 on the patio. With tables removed, networking events can accommodate even more. Wireless internet access, Pandora streaming radio and high-definition TV are also available for your audio visual needs. It’s like having an event at your own home, without having to do all the cleaning!

Our 2014 standard rate is $100 per hour, with a minimum of 3 hours. However, we recognize that not all events are created the same and we want to help good people with good causes share in and benefit from the space as much as possible. Therefore, a nonprofit and community event sliding scale option is also available.
We offer significant discounts for our Pioneer Members and Community Ambassadors. Find out more about membership.

Guests are welcome to bring in their own food and beverages when using The Garden, but in the spirit of our mission – we kindly request that all food be local and organically grown. If you have questions about food, please ask us! It’s our passion and we love to talk about it.

Looking for a unique experience?

The Garden offers one-of-a-kind cooking demo and tasting packages that can be added to your private event. We offer a variety of cooking demonstration & interactive tasting experiences that appeal to people who are curious about plant-based food, nutrition, gardening and the local food system and want to learn more about it.

To maintain an intimate experience, we recommend classes of up to 15 people, but more people can attend for an additional fee as noted. The Garden has a maximum onsite class size of 30 people.

Note: The facility rental fee is NOT included in the demos & tasting packages rate. All demo & tasting packages can be completed within the minimum 3-hour facility rental period. Groups are welcome to rent the space before or after the class for networking or socializing for an additional hourly fee pending availability. If you have a larger group you’d like to serve at an offsite location, please give us a call.

Our classes offer:

  1. an intimate opportunity to ask questions and share experiences with people who are as passionate about good food as you are
  2. an adventure for your tastebuds with lovingly prepared food using local and organic ingredients, some of which you may never have heard of
  3. tips to eat more easily, more affordably, more healthily and deliciously than ever before
  4. an introduction to some of the vibrant good food efforts happening in our community and ways you may want to get involved
