Since the San Diego Botanic Garden’s annual Gala in the Garden cannot be held this year due to the pandemic, the garden is bringing some fresh flavors — with the help of some incredible local chefs — to anyone who would like to support not only the garden, but also three local eateries.

This year, SDBG in Encinitas has put a whole new spin on its annual fall fundraising event. San Diego Botanic Garden has partnered with MIHO Catering, Cardiff Seaside Market, and Vigilucci’s to create gourmet garden-to-table dining experiences that can be enjoyed safely in your own home.

Thursdays and Fridays from September 10 to October 16, these three San Diego-based eateries will be cooking up three-course meals — including entrée, main course and dessert — that can either be picked up or delivered. Supporters can choose from eight different fixed menus each week, including dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian/vegan options.

“San Diego Botanic Garden is thrilled to partner with our area’s finest chefs to bring the Garden — in edible form — to you. In these hard times, it was important to design a fundraiser to benefit the garden and the businesses working so hard to thrive through these challenging times,” says SDBG President & CEO Ari Novy, PhD. “We’re all in this together and we’re excited to serve the community by serving dinner.”

These delicious prix fixe dinners cost $125 per person and benefit not only San Diego Botanic Garden, but also the local eatery providing the meal(s) ordered. Supporters who wish to donate to the garden directly without purchasing a meal are invited to contribute to the Garden’s Resiliency Bridge Fund at SDBGarden.org/donate-general.htm. All donations to this fund, created to help to sustain garden operations during the ongoing pandemic, will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100,000) through a challenge grant issued by philanthropists Carol and Martin Dickinson.

The mission of San Diego Botanic Garden is to “inspire people of all ages to connect with plants and nature.” The garden is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am–5pm. Masks are required for entry and visitors must put them on when within six feet of other guests outside of their group of family or friends. Reservations can be made at SDBGarden.org.
