Keeping it Green

This is the second time we've had the pleasure to work with Mike & Lizzie Thrasher. We were honored when they asked us to cater the food for their big award from the United States Green Building Council--The Platinum LEED Certification and a Net Zero Energy-- This is the highest award given to developments with the highest standards of environmentally friendly building practices. May 9th, County officials, USGBC Members and local residents gathered to celebrate at The Rosedale & Sears Cottage. 

"We hope our 'show' and 'tell' project becomes recognized globally as a benchmark in sustainable working and living."- Lizzie Thrasher 

Adding to "keeping it local," Kings Family Farm donated the tomatoes we used in our tarts and as well as the zucchini blooms {that were picked at noon}, which were stuffed with lavender ricotta and fried in a light locally brewed beer batter, severed at 5 p.m. to 100 guests.

The general store poured wine and made Mimosa to boot. We had our team and a few of The Cafes.
 Mike Thrasher, so kind and talented, put together our Table to Farm Dinner logo.

Keep an eye out for them starting in Fall 2012 and check out SRQ's August issue as they featured us  and the cover girl, Mrs. Shelby King herself. 

The ingredients for the celebration:
Jaquelyn Marie did the Photos
Sylvia's Flower Corner did the flowers
