Art Of Local Food

Good Food And Art All In One Place

It was all about good food, local artist, and great company tonight at Clyde Iron Works.

It was the 6th annual Art of Local Food fundraiser to benefit the Duluth Community Garden Program and the Arrowhead Professional Chefs Association.

It was 40 years ago that a few gardeners saw the need for fresh locally grown food and now 220 families grow fresh vegetables in 17 different sites around Duluth.

“We have the word community in our title, in our name, in our organization because that what we truly are a community organization. We were founded in the 70’s by a group of volunteers that got together and realized that there was a need for fresh food in the hillside. They found some funding, found some shovels and built these gardens and its grown from there,” Garden Program Employee Emily Richey.”

It was 50 dollars a plate for the 5 course meal and also featured a silent auction of locally known art work.
