This unique forest-to-table event will feature taste inspirations from our local ecosystem, served outdoors in the forest garden. Try acorn breads, fruits, spices, nuts, mushrooms and vegetables prepared by one of our area's most creative chefs. Enjoy a close up look at the thriving forest garden ecosystem. Discover the future of sustainable agriculture.

When you arrive at Forested, you can enjoy some light refreshments as one of our team takes you on a tour of the site. See forest garden crops. Visit our flock of gourmet-egg-laying ducks. When we sit down for dinner, you'll get to experience a French-style tasting menu of flavors and ingredients you've never had, prepared on site over an open fire.

Chef Michael and his team will share some thoughts on creating dishes from forest garden ingredients. Enjoy live music from local players.

The food was excellent, the ambiance was lovely, and the company was wonderful!!

Absolutely exquisite, so impressed you were able to create such complex flavor and dishes out of a neighborhood forest! Better than any 5-star restaurant I’ve been to!

I loved the unpretentious approach! Refreshing. Michael was a great fit! A true one-of-a-kind experience.

Amazing! I am buzzing from the fruits of the forest. It really doesn’t get any better than this.

From start to finish—it was a magical evening.
