Harvesting for Education - a harvest by and for our community

Garden of Esther was so happy to be a part of a recent event called "Harvesting for Education." Put on by the Education Foundation of Indian River County, it was both a fundraiser and a community-building evening of food and fun.

This beautiful farm-to-table evening was held at the Magnolia Manor in Vero Beach and offered a 5-course dining experience featuring locally-sourced granola, produce, and Garden of Esther fresh pasta.

Although it was billed as an night of fine food and live music, it was in fact a fundraiser for the Foundation. They provide a bevy of school support programs throughout Indian River County such as kindergarten readiness to get the littlest learners ready for school, a sneaker exchange to give underprivileged kids the opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of school (like gym class and recess!), and the very popular Science Fair to encourage a lifelong love of all things STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

One of the driving forces behind Garden of Esther is a passion for learning so this was a charitable donation that really resonated for us. The motivation to learn is a seed planted early in life and the Education Foundation of IRC does wonderful work getting and keeping kids K-12 ready for all aspects of their school experience.

We appreciate the opportunity to simultaneously work to build community connections and contribute to the educational success of local children - this kind of evening is a win for everyone.
