Join hundreds of your friends and neighbors at the
8th Annual Outdoor Square Dance Spring FUNdraiser
for The Lord’s Acre.
Saturday May 28, 5:30 – 9:30 pm.
There’ll be live music, square dancing, potlucking, hay rides, auction and much more. Much of our operating budget comes from this fundraiser so enjoy playing, eating and socializing outdoors until the fireflies come out and help us grow more food, community and education in 2016.
Now in our eighth growing season, this garden has brought thousands of people into the opportunity to be inspired by new ways of doing community and doing food. We don’t buy the “giver” and “receiver” labels, since we all have something to offer and all have something we need.What we do believe in is taking peoples’ strengths, passions, talents, and creativity and weaving those into solutions on issues like food security, loneliness, prejudice and the isolation of modern society. Yes, we believe a garden and the acts of learning, growing and eating food together, can accomplish all that. We believe it because we see it every day.
