What is Gray Mockingbird Garden you ask? Well, Gray Mockingbird is a community garden situated on North D Street in Lake Worth. Their mission is to teach sustainability and resiliency on land generously donated by the Scottish Rite. 10%-15% of food raised is donated to feed local hungry people. The dinner I attended, held in the garden under the shade of a big oak tree, was a fund raiser for the organization. Jazz pianist Gianni Bianchini treated us to old school Sinatra sounds while our own GULP Founder, Coreen, prepared an outstanding 5 course dinner. Check it out!

There should be a picture of dessert:
Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas with
Sapodilla Ice Cream
I ate mine before I remembered to take the picture. My excuse was the giant rain storm headed our way and we ended up in the Kitchen for dessert! You gotta love Mother Nature.
Here are a few images I caught of the Garden. Hopefully it will inspire you to get involved by donating cash or even sweat equity!
