Community garden benefit dinner is set for saturday

The Seminole Heights Community Garden will hold a benefit dinner prepared by Six Tables restaurant chefs James Canter and Richard Bottini.

The dinner, scheduled for Saturday, is $100 per plate, including wine. The proceeds will be saved to buy or lease more property later for the garden.

Garden coordinator Robin Milcowitz said Bottini approached her with the idea.

"He's trying to do more for his local community," she said. "We jumped at the opportunity."

The garden was started this year to create a place for residents to grow their own food. The dinner will have two seatings, 6:30 and 9:15 p.m. For reservations, call Six Tables at (813) 207-0527.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at the Metropolitan Community Church, 408 E Cayuga St.
