Honoring the Earth, One Bite at a Time

Marker 92’s chef will offer a sustainable menu Saturday for Earth Hour.

Climate change affects us all, from the water needed for our crops to the excessive heat thwarting it from falling out of the skies. In 2007, a grassroots movement started to dedicate one hour of our lives each March to reflect on this—and how we might be able to do something about it. Now, Earth Hour is observed across the world, and this Saturday, March 19, from 8:30-9:30 p.m., you can turn off your lights in observance, or book a table at Marker 92 from 5 p.m. on for a $49 dinner with each ingredient sourced within 200 miles of the Cape Coral waterfront restaurant. It was chef Tim Duque’s idea on how he could raise awareness, and the three-course menu features passionfruit from Plant City, mangoes from Homestead and grouper from the Gulf;  everything down to the dried fruit, rum and cheese is from our neck of the woods—a delicious way to make a difference indeed.
