Creating a Life of Plenty

From Field To Table


I am in LOVE! Well, I have been in love with my partner for a very long time, hi honey! But, I visited the new campus area of the Franklin Park Conservatory and I am definitely smitten!
We visited the campus during the From Field to Table Festival. This celebration of Ohio’s harvest is sponosored, in part by Our Ohio (the Ohio Farm Bureau).
The festival features some of the best fresh from the farm to the table food and fun for the whole family. I also had a chance to attend some workshops on preserving, wood fire cooking and a special discussion and cooking demonstration by one of my favorites, the chef and owner of Dragonfly.
Magdiale discussed with the audience the aesthetics of the garden, its inspiration as well as shared sources of organic seeds and supplies. He then prepared a fricasse of leeks with heirloom tomatoes, portobello mushrooms and french bread! It was outstanding.
The campus looked amazing, with potagers, abeiery habitats, composting areas…it was amazing, check out these photos, or better yet, go see the new campus for yourself. Visit for moreinformation on hours and current exhibits.
Happy Gardening!
