Our hearts are full after a wonderful Shared Harvest event. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it – we loved meeting you and sharing the important food justice work GTC is part of in Springfield. It was a stunningly gorgeous fall evening – and so wonderful to enjoy delicious food and conversation together, good music and a bonfire under a beautiful starlit sky.
A special thanks to all who gave generously to help support Gardening the Community. And especially to our new sustainers!!! We value the trust you have placed in us and also the spirit of partnership and shared commitment that you expressed for our work. We could feel the love in the room, and it meant so much to us all.
If you were not able to attend, we hope we get to meet you another time. If you would like us to come speak to your organization, faith community or workplace, we are always up for the adventure! GTC will be having our annual Harvest Celebration and Pancake Breakfast in Springfield on Saturday November 2. We hope many of you will join us then! We have a lot of fun — and of course good food (featuring our own harvest pancake) – and we will be celebrating the work of our youth and our many accomplishments over the past year.
Again, we are grateful for the many ways our community supports us. And appreciative of the Gardening the Community/Next Barn Over partnership and all the good things flowing from it. Thank you!
