The abundance of the 391 Michigan Avenue Vegetable Garden was celebrated in a Fall Harvest party last Saturday, 25 October at the garden itself. The pictures below say it all beautifully and thoroughly! The weather was perfect. There were about 65 people in attendance, who prayed, did a little Tai Chi, and feasted on a scrumptious four-course farm fresh vegan menu prepared by Tambra from NativeSol Kitchen, with a variety of libations.

We were blessed with a live jazz performance organized by Violet Marley that featured some familiar Bob Marley tunes as well as some original pieces from the performers themselves. Garlic was planted in abundance and some general preparations for winter were made easier by volunteering hands.

Everyone enjoyed great vegan food.

Thanks to Gail Taylor (the farmer) and her friends and colleagues, to George Ngolwe (JPIC Staff) for his many contributions related to the garden, and to José Roberto Araújo da Silva OMI for his generous contributions to the Garden during the season and his logistics and personal support for the event on Saturday.
