Community Harvest Celebration

Let’s celebrate the harvest! Everyone is welcome.

Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017
Time: 11am - 2pm
Location: #109 Lotherton Pathway

The residents involved in these urban agriculture projects usually like to start with a bit of ‘putting the garden to bed’ work and once everyone is fully exhausted (about 2-3 hours in), we go indoors for a fresh lunch and sharing of any harvest collected.

If you are interested in joining us to get a bit of outdoor exercise or simply want to see these projects first hand, feel free to drop by!
