A partnership is planted. The new garden at Riverwood Mansion.

New partnership and new garden blooming in April.

In recent months, Chef Debbie Sutton owner and head chef of 8 Lavender Lane Catering & Events also took over as the management team leader of Riverwood Mansion. With these changes, Chef Sutton has introduced Riverwood to more community events and partnerships, specifically involving the local culinary scene. With the first ever Local Fest @ the Mansion and Pop Up Dinner back in November to this new endeavor that we are excited to announce...

  Chef Debbie Sutton has partnered up with Chef Trey Cioccia of The Farm House on a "farm to fork" concept to bring the freshest ingredients to their guests. Riverwood will be home to a new garden where fresh produce will be grown, harvested and then served at Cioccia's restaurant and incorporated into Sutton's catering menu. We're excited to be participating in this important initiative and to use our land in a way that supports local businesses bringing the community fresher food.

We have officially broke ground where the garden will be planted and the plans to build a greenhouse alongside are also in effect. A new railroad tie compost will be installed to compliment the outdoor garden and greenhouse. This will allow us to use the resources of our own land more effectively.
