Tacos, Talent, and Tons of Food during Harvest Week….Oink

This past week on the West Side was one to remember.  So good we actually have to start the Friday before where we had a special visit from a pig named Kevin, ate sushi for lunch, and played 4 way capture the flag with face paint at Harriet Island.  Following what was a very fun Friday,  Tuesday started with a couple of  youth farm parents as guest chefs, Wednesday  we harvested what felt like a ton, Friday we highlighted the arts, expertise, and savvy of our youth with a talent show, then finally Saturday sold some produce at the West Side Farmers Market.  Overall it was a pretty spectacular week, truly one of the best we’ve had.

And one of our youth found a 4 leafed clover. Hard work and luck goes a very long way.
