An Evening with Friends
On September 24th, our organization hosted our first Garden Fundraiser Dinner. Being able to host our members, supporters, and community members for a farm fresh meal was one of the highlights of the summer. In addition to celebrating our growing season with our community, we were able to raise funds for the organization and all proceeds will be used to continue the buildout of the RYTF Community Garden. We couldn't continue our work without amazing supporters like you and we are so fortunate to be able to share our accomplishments with our community. Thank you for a beautiful evening of food, music, and movement building!
We would also like to thank our amazing community garden members for helping coordinate the evening. We could not have done it with you! We would especially like to recognize Community Garden Member, Oprah Davidson, who prepared the delicious meal with vegan options using produce straight from the garden. She can be reached for recipes and future services at www.oprahcatering.com or by phone at 347-772-0936.
