Chapter Meeting and Potluck Brunch in the Garden

Cavotta’s heirloom tomatoes

Sunday July 14, 2019
10:00 am

Location: Cavotta’s Garden Center and Urban Farm
19603 Nottingham Road | Cleveland, Ohio 44110

Founded in 1930, Cavotta’s is run by Angela Cavotta, 3rd generation owner of this Collinwood historic garden center since 2006.

Cavotta’s is known for hosting The Cleveland Tomato Festival, a natural offshoot of its other notable endeavor: heirloom tomatoes. Home to more than a hundred varieties of heirloom tomatoes, Cavotta’s starts them from seed in its own greenhouses. It carries a wide range of vegetables, herbs, and flowers as well as seeds, locally produced food products, and some garden supplies. Newly added this year is the Garden Bar, where we’ll enjoy potluck brunch and cash bar libations. We encourage you to walk the grounds before or after our meeting to check out the vintage garden furniture and décor and visit the goats, rabbits, and chickens. Learn more: Cavotta's Article in Edible Cleveland

BRING: A dish to share! There will be cash bar available.

COST: Members $5.00 | Guests $10.00 – Cover charge (for employee gratuity) reserves your spot.

RSVP: RSVP by July 10 via PayPal link below.
