Heirloom Gardens Farm Dinner at duo Restaurant!

We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with duo for a farm dinner. duo is one of Denver's most wonderful restaurants, and it is owned by two of Heirloom Gardens' NSA members. duo has always featured locally produced food on its seasonal menu, and they regularly host farm dinners as a way to further feature local  farms and farmers. Located in the Highland neighborhood, it is a one of NW Denver's treasures.

The dinner will consist of a 4-course meal featuring Heirloom Gardens organic, NW Denver grown produce. We can attest that everything served at the Tuesday dinner will be harvested from the gardens on Monday, so the produce will be less than 36 hours off the plant. Sundari Kraft, the founder of Heirloom Gardens, will be at the dinners to talk briefly about urban agriculture and local food production, and answer questions.
