An update from The Four Coursemen in Athens-

Damien’s new traveling dining experience called Public Domain Dinners is kicking off a growing series of dinners just outside of Athens with the annual Harvest Moon dinner on Friday, October 26th at the beautiful Woodland Gardens in Winterville, GA. With Public Domain, Damien is expanding on his mission of connecting people through outstanding local food and a compelling educational dining experience, by traveling to different towns and collaborating with a talented chef from each town on a dinner that really showcases the culinary talent, producers, and artisans of each town, and gives something positive to each community.

This dinner will feature the extremely talented, and newly appointed executive chef of our beloved 5&10, Dean Neff. Dean brings his unique approach to 5&10 while staying true to the traditions of the restaurant. In this Public Domain Dinner you will get an opportunity to enjoy a menu designed by Dean, Damien, and their good friend Matt Downes of Athens’s Luna Baking Corp. The menu will feature the excellent produce of Woodland Gardens, harvested fresh from the earth, and ingredients from the Athens Land Trust Market Garden and other local artisans.

‘Garden & Gun’ Magazine did a feature on Public Domain Dinners this week that explains more. Check it out here. For more information on Public Domain Dinners visit www.publicdomaindinners.com.

Proceeds from this dinner will benefit Athens Land Trust who’s mission is to preserve greenspace and provide affordable, energy efficient in-town housing in Athens, GA. For the past two years ALT has also worked to establish a network of community gardens. With over 2,858 acres in Athens-Clarke and surrounding counties protected under conservation easement, over 144 affordable housing units, and 30 working community gardens, plus the ALT Market Garden, ALT is producing visible results, as evidenced by their being recognized year in and year out with awards at local and state levels, as well as national accreditation. ALT received a 2010 Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation Outstanding Rehabilitation Award for their new office at 685 North Pope Street – a renovation that the Harvest Moon Dinner was created to fund. Form more information, please visit www.athenslandtrust.org.

Tickets for this dinner are $150 (half of which is considered a charitable contribution) and they have just been made available. They can be purchased by calling the ALT office at 706-613-0122, or by emailing nathan@athenslandtrust.org. This will be the only Public Domain Dinner that happens close to Athens and it is for a good cause, so we hope you will take this opportunity to join Public Domain and Athens Land Trust at Woodland Gardens.
