Phipps Conservatory's 8th annual Tomato & Garlic festival: Red, Ripe & Roasted

If you're in or around Pittsburgh, PA on August 26th 2012, treat yourself to a delightful day at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. This year is the 8th annual tomato and garlic festival, featuring two of the season's tastiest crops.

Each year, Phipps gathers the greater Pittsburgh community together to celebrate the bounty of summer and offers tastings, cooking demos, a farmers' market, kids' activities, and more! I'm speaking 11:00 to 12:00 right there on their historic and sustainably managed front lawn!

If you bring a donation for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank you'll receive free admission.
