Cornucopia celebrates garden with pot-luck
The Cornucopia Project is hosting a pot-luck community dinner on April 19 in appreciation of the volunteers and supporters who made the Cornucopia Community Garden a reality. The garden was built as a giving and teaching garden. Vegetables raised will be donated to the local food pantries, and gardening classes for children will begin this spring.
More than 100 volunteers came together last summer and fall — digging, hammering, landscaping, planting, and offering help in a variety of ways to make the garden come alive. Businesses offered discounts, individuals and organizations sponsored raised vegetable beds and fruit trees, loaned equipment, and large and small gifts were donated.
“What better way to celebrate a community-grown garden than by gathering together around the table to share a meal” said Joyce Carroll, Associate Director of the Cornucopia Project. “Although we still have remaining projects in order to fully complete the garden, we thought a spring feast would be a great way to begin the growing season.”
All community members are invited to attend the celebration. It is suggested that attendees contribute a small side dish to share (except for supporters and volunteers — unless they love to cook). The event will take place at the Peterborough Community Center from 5:30 to 7. RSVP by contacting the Cornucopia Project at firstname.lastname@example.org , or 784-5069.
