Excerpts from Tom Oder's article, Spruill Gallery hosts garden party for the ages

Shawn Bard can grow a garden. Hope Cohn can throw a party. Put the two get together on a delightful spring evening at a farmhouse with a history that spans three centuries and what do you get? A garden party for the ages.

“Look at this!” Hope exclaimed during the reception. “Everyone’s in the garden.

“The first week of May there was nothing. Just nothing. And now we have tomatoes!”

Indeed, there are not only tomatoes … but also sweet potatoes, radishes, dill, basil and various kinds of squash. Some of the plants were grown from seed, some were bought at the Dunwoody Community Garden plant sale and some were donated by a local men’s club. All of the produce will be donated to Malachi’s Storehouse, the Food Pantry at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church on North Peachtree Road in Dunwoody, or the Community Action Center serving Roswell and Sandy Springs.
