Good Earth Market farm dinner

  • Good Earth Market 31806 Good Earth Lane Ocean View, DE 19970 (map)

Some 125 guests and Governor Jack Markell and First Lady Carla Markell, chair of our Advisory Council, gathered under a festive tent for this annual fundraiser for the Delaware Botanic Gardens at Good Earth Farm, Ocean View, Delaware. They enjoyed a fabulous dinner of locally grown foods prepared by Matt Haley's SoDel Concepts, a cocktail hour, a silent auction. The event quickly sold out.
