Hopefully, the beginning
of a long tradition
Growing Community would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone involved in helping to make the first Community Harvest Supper a success. The focus of our group is to encourage eating local food by growing kitchen gardens and supporting local farms, sharing in the process, and building community. A culminating event like the Harvest Supper is an ideal way to end the growing season and celebrate Growing Community’s mission. Being able to celebrate with hundreds of like minded community members was such a gift!
Thank you, Cooperstown Village Board and Mayor Jeff Katz, for seeing the value in this community building event and allowing it to take place on Main Street.
Thank you, MJ Harris, for your vision of an enormous and beautiful dining table in which to share the harvest and for the donation of all decorations.
Thank you to The Farmers’ Museum for, not only allowing us to use your tables and chairs, but also for helping us to get them to and from Main Street. Your donation of time and resources is invaluable.
Thank you, Ommegang Brewery for your kind donation of delicious beer.
Thank you to the Smithy for the use of chairs.
