Tastings

We highlight foods grown in the garden and orchard through samples - there have even been some transformative moments for some in discovering new foods or rediscovering new methods of preparation.

Generate excitement

We enjoy sharing the fruits of our labor! Donations and nutrition education are ways we try to combat hunger and food insecurity.
