Thank you to all those who joined us at our first annual (we hope!) Harvest Festival & Picnic. We had a great turnout for our family-friendly event, complete with a picnic lunch, face painting, children's activities, and a kudzu basket market from our friends at Bhutan Baskets. We spent the lovely Saturday afternoon celebrating our hard work, eating delicious food, touring the farm, and of course, taking pleasure in the song and dance performed by the Burundi women. The video below briefly captures their performance, which they created especially to thank everyone for coming out to the farm. They told us that their song is about coming to Atlanta and growing vegetables here.
As a fundraiser, the event was a huge success. We exceeded our fundraising goals, thanks to generous support from the community, which puts us in an excellent position to continue our growing efforts next year.
We will post more pictures from the event soon.
