Introducing Ellie’s Private Chefs and Catering –
our new Beehive Sponsor who supports the community garden and our entire community.
Summit Community Gardens is excited to announce our new Beehive Sponsor, Ellie’s Private Chefs and Catering! The folks at Ellie’s are dedicated to supporting a number of local nonprofits in our community and they feature locally sourced ingredients in the seasonal cuisine they prepare for their clients.
In discussing why she wanted to support the garden, Ellie Shropshire said, “we work with fresh produce every day, so partnering with Summit Community Gardens was a natural fit. We like to connect with local partners and promote organic produce, especially locally grown. Growing our own food is rewarding, educational and fun!”
Through the Beehive Sponsorship, Ellie’s will help us maintain a healthy beehive that will ensure there are bees to pollinate the crops grown by our community gardeners and in our own Demonstration Garden, from which the food is donated to local food banks throughout Park City and Summit County. It’s truly a benefit to the entire community.
When we asked Ellie why she thought it was important to support our beehive, she responded: “We are fascinated by the bees! Food can be both delicious and restorative. Local raw honey is rumored to be a natural remedy for seasonal allergies. We also love the idea of beekeeping and educating the next generation about the importance of pollination – bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining our ecosystems. Most importantly we absolutely LOVE honey and use it in many of our dishes. It’s simply delicious!”
