Tea in the Garden Report

P1080493February 23rd 2013
A lovely chapter in stories from the garden. Anchored by a sell-out crowd gathered about the beautifully decorated tables and the bustling overflow area, touring parties meandered, wanderers strolled and shoppers bought out the Creamed Honey stock!  After tea, sandwiches, and speeches on GROW, GATHER, GIVE the party continued with further tours through the tiki-lit paths with live music floating into the greenery.
In case you missed it or would like to relive the experience here are some links:

RESULTS: A huge success as a community event and fundraiser with a net $6200 raised, a major jump from last year!  Thanks to everyone who came out and volunteered their time and talents, and who gave generously so that The Fruitful Field can continue to Grow-Gather-Give!

Funds are already being put to productive use, buying seeds for the summer and planning expanded educational opportunities for neighborhood kids and families.

WHAT’S NEXT:  It’s not too late to help us grow great food for community, educate the next generation on gardening and its rewards, and support community growing in a little green corner in a concrete world!  There is a donate button on our website and the third Saturday of every month is a Volunteer day.
