Provenance is happy to host this year’s FEAST. At Provenance, we share and support Shreveport Green’s vision and mission for our city. We are dedicated to responsibly developing a sustainable community, centered on a healthy lifestyle that promotes preservation and respect for the natural and built environments. The word “provenance” is a forestry term meaning “a preserved grove of trees”. At Provenance, you’ll find tree-lined streets and several protected, natural areas, in addition to our many public spaces throughout the community. Homes are beautiful, unique and incorporate the latest sustainable technologies, which our builders mindfully and diligently employ. One visit to our many community events throughout the year will reveal a vital community that encourages relationships among neighbors and a strong, secure neighborhood.
We’d like to thank Shreveport Green for the opportunity to host such a wonderful event, and we hope you enjoy your stay here at Provenance – whether it’s just for tonight or for all your nights.

Preston Lowder is a Shreveport, Louisiana native, father of three, and owner of Lowder Baking Company. Preston – a former Neuro-ICU RN – and his wife Sarah began their culinary career by baking small batches of king cakes during Mardi Gras seasons. Quickly growing out of their home kitchen and realizing that there are very limited options for freshly baked bread in our area, Lowder decided it was time to take the leap and expand.
