SATURDAY, APRIL 14
9 AM – 12 PM

 
If  you ever wanted to learn about composting, if you've had a hankering to get your hands in the dirt and harvest vegetables, if you've wanted to welcome neighbors and make new friends, and wanted to enjoy some delicious pizza from the Harvest pizza oven, then this day was for you! We all brought a topping to add to the pizza or the salad we made after harvesting from the garden. We were at Harvest's Bayshore property: 5512 26th Street West in Bradenton, FL 34207.
