To honor those who were affected by the event on 9/11/01; we celebrated life by hosting a harvest party. We had performances by Nu Fi Alpha, U-Nice, Alex Schein,and ReadNex Poetry Squad. This event was free to public. We had over a 50 people come through the garden throughout the day. In order to help support future of the Urban Farmers League we auctioned off : rosemary, lavender, mint, basil, and tomatoes from out garden at 59 Chambers Street. The remainder was given to our neighbors.
