Coming Up: Green Gala Garden Party

The UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley will host a fundraising Green Gala garden party this Sunday, the 28th with a fashion show featuring local designs made from fibers and dyes from the garden. Models will glide down the runway in the Redwood Grove Ampitheatre to live music and guests will enjoy seasonal and organic food from Devoted Catering by Amiee Alan and biodynamic wine from Quivira Vineyards. A silent auction will also help to raise funds to support the garden. Designers include Casey Larkin, Skye Schuchman, Savannah Knoop (of the J.T. Leroy fame) and Tierra del Forte (Del Forte Denim), among others.

The Botanical Garden is devoted to educating the public on the amazing relationship between plants and people - don't miss out on the chance to experience local design, food and wine in a very unique and beautiful setting. For tickets and more information, click here.
