Oct 17 | Fall Farm Festival

It's the 3rd annual fall festival at Three Part Harmony Farm!
Saturday, October 17th!

Garlic Planting: 10 - 12 We begin, as always with garlic planting in the morning from 10 - 12. Participants should wear clothes that can get dirty. This is an all-ages volunteer experience!
Potluck: 1 - 4 This year our festival will be a potluck. Please bring a dish to share.

Art, Games, Music, Food Demo!

The mural will be a community-guided art project led by Caryl Henry Alexander. The theme will be: Imagining sustainable agroecology for our community's future. This mural installation is part of a larger community arts building project being promoted thorugh the US Department of Arts and Culture. By creating art together as a community, we answer their call: Together: We create the World We Wish to Inhabit!

Many thanks to Caryl Henry Alexander and EcoHermanas for making this gift possible: our first farm art!
