Grab a seat at a dinner party in Decatur Cemetery

How would you like to attend a dinner party with about 150 of your closest friends?

Global Growers is hosting the third annual Decatur’s Dinner Party, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sept. 19 at historic Decatur Cemetery, 299 Bell St.

Some of metro Atlanta’s most talented chefs will team up with organic farmers to cook up a dinner for community leaders and guests. Organizers said participating chefs include Andy Gonzalez from Steinbeck’s Ale House and Kevin Gillespie from Revival. The meal will be presented family-style on the grounds of the cemetery.

The dinner will feature fresh produce from Global Growers farmers, cocktails, local beer and wine. There will also be silent and live auctions.

Proceeds will benefit the Global Growers network, a nonprofit organization that creates opportunities through sustainable agriculture. The organization manages farms throughout metro Atlanta, two of which are in Decatur. The largest is Decatur’s Kitchen Garden, located at the United Methodist Children’s Home, 500 S. Columbia Dr.

Tickets are $150 for an individual and $1,200 for a table of eight. To buy tickets, go to the Global Growers website at
