Farmers Formal

 

Thank You For Helping Us Grow!

Thanks to our generous supporters, we raised $334,000 at our 11th Annual Farmers Formal! These funds enable us to sustain our Farm & Garden Apprenticeship Program, offer employment to youth, provide produce to families in need, and develop the farm into a beautiful, innovative learning environment. Take a look at some of the photos from this amazing event HERE!
