Spend an Evening with Innovators

Join the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association for an evening with innovators and local food and beverages from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, at Bryan Flower’s Farm, 13459 Tower Road in Lee.

The evening will begin with locally sourced cocktails, beverages and appetizers. The outdoor sit-down dinner will include a traditional pig roast and vegetables grown by DeKalb County Community Gardens. Finally, dessert and coffee will be served near a bonfire. All the food on the menu is locally grown meat and produce from DeKalb County. Local innovators will be giving short presentations similar to a “TED Talk” with time to network and brainstorm with other guests.
