KEEP THE GARDEN GROWING
9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $5.

Anyone who has stepped outside in recent weeks can tell you that 2012 has been a brutal year for farmers in Arkansas and across much of the South and Midwest, as the region suffers through one of the hottest prolonged periods and one of the worst droughts in decades. That goes double for anybody who's attempted to raise a garden.

Dunbar Community Garden Project Coordinator Damian Thompson said irrigation has been a constant concern, and that much of the fruit this year has come in weeks early and smaller than usual. This show is a fundraiser to help ensure that the "two-acre outdoor classroom" has the resources it needs to continue educating the community about where food comes from.

This show includes performances from Peckerwolf, Tsar Bomba and Winston Family Orchestra, as well as a raffle for a basket filled with honey, a dozen eggs, a Dunbar Garden shirt and a package of threshed sunflower seeds.

The White Water's kitchen will be serving up food made with some of Dunbar's produce, including pear ice cream from Loblolly Creamery (to be served, I'm told, atop a bread pudding from WWT chef Jonathan Wilkins) and eggplant fries.
