Saturday, chefs from River City and Lumiere Place casinos traded a kitchen of stainless steel for the outdoors when they prepared a meal at a community garden for volunteers.
The chefs prepared a “Low Country Boil,” which is a large seafood stew, at the Bell Demonstration Garden.
The garden is a community space that hosts educational workshops on gardening since 2001. Comprised of 22 vacant lots in St. Louis, the garden promotes urban food growth.
Gateway Greening, an organization dedicated to improving communities through agriculture, started the project.
