I have some exciting news: in a little over one week on Saturday, November 3 our friends at Grow Dat Youth Farm in City Park are having a fundraiser! Starting at 10 a.m. Grow Dat will have a Plant Sale selling winter garden essentials and ornamental plants. From 12-5 p.m. the Party starts! There will be food, drinks, music, a tour of their new eco-campus and games, all organized by Grow Dat staff and youth interns. Food trucks and sponsors like La Cocinita, Frencheeze and Old New Orleans Rum Distillery have all signed up for the fun.
All proceeds go to Grow Dat’s mission to “nurture a diverse group of young leaders through the meaningful work of growing food” – Jeanne Firth, Grow Dat Program Specialist. This benefits US as Clark Prep students participate in Grow Dat’s program with applications due in mid-November for the next Spring/Summer 2013 session.
Team Grow Dat and I hope you can make it to this special event!
Plant Sale: 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Party: 12 p.m.-5 p.m.
Location: 150 Zachary Taylor Drive, City Park
