WHAT A STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL MAY DAY!
Thanks again to those who braved the Benderdinker last weekend despite the super soggy conditions. Your support makes a world of difference to our
programs year-round.

Speaking of programs …

SAT-SUN, MAY 2-3 – ICEBOX MINISTRIES’ “MAY DAY PLAY DAY” – There are amazing things happening in local foods on Fenwick Street in Harrisburg. At the center of it are the good folks of Icebox Farm & Icebox Ministries and other partners of G.R.O.W. Harrisburg. Come join us for a two-day renovation of an old florist shop at the new urban garden campus. We’ll use it as a teaching kitchen for the FVRx this summer. Okay, so this might sound like more of a “work day” than a “play day” … but believe me … it’s all fun. Work starts at 9am each day and goes til we’re exhausted. Painting, flooring, gardening, hole digging, and general cleaning up. Bring work gloves, a water bottle and a machete – to chop down bamboo – if you’ve got it. Lunch will be provided both days for all volunteers! Text Kim at 706-288-7895 to sign up and get the address.

SAT-SUN, MAY 2-3 – LOW DOWN THROW DOWN – Honored and flat out stoked that ALG has been selected as the nonprofit beneficiary of the Soul City Sirens Roller Derby tournament this May Day weekend. Come throw a few back, get in touch with your inner queen and support the local foods movement. Proceeds will go to our FVRx program for women and their children. Tourney runs 8am-8pm, both days, at the Columbia County Exhibition Center in Grovetown. Visit soulcitysirens.com for a schedule. And text Kim if you can cover a few hours of our promo booth as a volunteer: 706-288-7895.

SAT, MAY 2 – SOUTHERN MADE, STORE GRAND OPENING – Congratulations to three local farmers for announcing the grand opening of their new fiber arts store “Southern Made” on Sat, May 2, 10am-5:30pm.
