United Way of the Greater Capital Region Harvest for the Community

October 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for an afternoon carrot harvest with our farmer, Aliza Pickering, and learn more about the United Way of the Greater Capital Region. Produce is grown and harvested on our farm and from our demonstration 'Giving Garden' to donate to our partners at Franklin Community Center, Inc. and further distributed to six senior centers, and two rural food pantries through our partnership with Saratoga Wilton Elks Lodge #161. With over 100 acres of farmable land, partnerships with organizations addressing food insecurity in our region just makes sense. What can we accomplish together?

We'll enjoy farm to table appetizers prepared by Saratoga vegan-friendly restaurant Whole Harvest along with local craft beer/wine and other refreshments in our High Tunnel after the harvest.

Attire: Please dress casual and warm, also be prepared with boots or shoes you don't mind getting dirty.
