We’re not letting April showers deter us from celebrating spring in style. And what better way to celebrate than by attending The Manor Conservancy’s annual Calcutta and Farm-to-Table fundraising dinner?
This year, the local tradition will take place April 10 at 6 p.m., at the Ladew Topiary Gardens in Monkton. Ladew will also host My Lady’s Manor Steeplechase Races the next day (another seasonal Maryland tradition we love).
While the menu options for the dinner are already making us salivate—highlights include local artisan goat cheese from Charlottetown Farm, wild mushroom ravioli and assorted cupcakes—the real treat of the night will be a painting by artist Meg Page.
The Conservancy will auction off a beautiful, botanical portrait of My Lady’s Manor Iris, a stunning hybrid iris that was created by Philip Remare to celebrate the tercentennial of My Lady’s Manor.
A renowned local artist, Page has painted nature-themed works inspired by places she’s visited, including the Ladew Gardens, Maryland Hunt Country, the Florida Keys and more.
Founded in 1993, The Manor Conservancy is a tax-exempt conservation land trust focused on preserving the rural character of the Manor Area. Ticket packages for the dinner are available for members, new members and non-member guests at themanorconservancy.org.
