Imagine sitting in front of the historic Log Cabin, at white linen-covered tables with the sun setting as the backdrop. It’s here on Thursday, Sept. 10, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. that friends of the Rutgers Gardens will share a culinary experience at the inaugural Gardens Party… The best food and wine offerings from the Rutgers Gardens Farm Market vendors will be featured. A true foodie event, guests and attendees will be joined by Rachel Weston, award-winning journalist and chef, who will share her passion for making seasonally inspired meals from food grown locally. Just published in May, her new book, "New Jersey Fresh: Four Seasons of Farm to Table," features five of the Rutgers Gardens Farm Market vendors… The 2015 Hamilton Award for Dedication and Outstanding Commitment will be presented to Dr. Robert Goodman, executive dean of the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers University. Since taking on the role of executive dean in 2005, Bob has been a true supporter and friend of the Rutgers Gardens. Over the past 10 years he has provided funding, guidance, and support on a number of key projects, such as the development of the Advisory Board, the completion of the Feasibility Study, and the start of the Master Plan.
