Farm-to-Table Florals & Flavors
Join Greg Campbell and Erick New, co-owners of Garden District in Memphis, Tennessee, and Elizabeth Heiskell, a cookbook author and celebrity chef who operated a catering business and vegetable farm in Oxford, Mississippi until she reinvented her culinary path as a regular on “TODAY Show.” Greg, Erick and Elizabeth have been intertwined for more than 20 years. It all started with Elizabeth’s wedding in the middle of a Mississippi Delta cotton field in the pouring rain. This event should have ended their friendship, but instead it bonded them as friends for life.

Elizabeth will share stories from the Delta flatlands to the Oxford hills while demonstrating her favorite seasonal vegetable dishes––recipes you can prepare in a few minutes and impress your guests with time and time again. Greg and Erick will complement Elizabeth’s creations with tablescapes using flowers sourced from family-owned farms across the U.S. and abroad that are showcased in their new book Florists to the Field.

Garden District
The Garden District is a Memphis-based floral boutique that is comprised of two talented floriculture experts, Greg Campbell and Erick New, who have created together for 25 years. The duo brings alert perfectionism, methodical strategy and boundless creativity to every project. From skyscraping installations to unobtrusive centerpieces, their pieces celebrate life’s grand milestones and simple pleasures.

Elizabeth Heiskell
