Here’s an event my friend Kelley brought to my attention this morning: it’s called the Harvest Pierce Summit, it’s totally FREE, and it will take place on Saturday, May 2nd between the hours of 10am – 2pm at Lincoln High School.
I found a description of this event from their website:
This is a day for the whole family to enjoy delicious food, celebration, and dozens of classes ranging from horticulture, community skills, and sustainable living.
There is a lot to look forward to:
- Free lunch of local,sustainably sourced food
- Plant starts for sale grown by Mount Tahoma FFA and Lincoln High School
- Dozens of classes including Mushroom 101, Fermenting, Food Preservation, Urban Foraging, Fruit Tree care, and Community Skills
- Empowering Youth in our community to share their vision for Tacoma’s food system
- Free childcare
Wow! Free gardening workshops, free food, and free childcare? I’m all over this one. I love the topics they’ve got lined up too, and there will be a guest speaker to talk about “food not lawns.”
While the event is free, you will need to register online to reserve your spot. Head to Harvest Pierce County to learn more.
Thanks so much, Kelley!
