category: Family Programs  |  location: Barn

Enjoy a spring evening at hagley with delectable dishes at a family-style Farm-to-Table dinner. The evening begins with a private tour of Hagley’s E.I. du Pont Garden by Paul Orpello, supervisor of gardens and horticulture, followed by a French-themed dinner in the Hagley Barn.     

The garden, a refined French kitchen garden or potagér, was the first du Pont garden in America. It also was a showcase of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers acquired from the most notable European and American horticulturists of the time.     

hrough successful restoration, the garden is revived to the full glory of E.I. du Pont’s 1804 plan and is the finest example of its kind in America. Today it bears an abundance of the botanic history that inspired generations of du Pont gardens to follow. It also inspires Hagley’s spring Farm-to-Table dinner.     

Following the reception in the garden with Orpello, participants will head to the Hagley Barn for a dinner showcasing produce grown at Hagley and area farms. Seating will begin at 5:45 p.m.     

The menu will be featured in upcoming member emails, along with a link to purchase tickets. For questions or to add/update your email to your membership, contact the membership office weekdays at (302) 658-2400, ext. 235.
