Block Party: October 2013

Loving our new community garden sign, thanks to students from MICA!

This past Saturday, October 5th, we had a great time at the 3rd annual Boone Street Block Party. 

Special thanks to farm manager Cheryl Carmona, farm assistants Rosa, Eden, Dana, Natanya, Ryan, Wardell, Clarissa, and Christian, community gardeners Ms. Jeanine, Ms. Wanda, Ms. Vera, and Arnold Joo, our neighbor and grill chef Neale, Chessie for DJ'ing, Cheryl's parents for making cupcakes and goodie bags for the kids and so much work setting up and breaking down, and our MICA assistants for painting our new community garden sign. And of course to all of our other neighbors, community gardeners, friends, and supporters for attending. Aliza took these photos and is writing this blog post.

What kind of fun did we have?
