Mark your calendars! This year’s Harvest Mayhem event is shaping up to be a promising family affair! The event will be held on October 14th, 2017 from 11am-3pm at Sustainable Renton Community Farm (11840 148th Ave SE Renton 98059 behind Celebration Church).
We are continuing with many of the traditions of our earlier events such as a community stone soup potluck and cider pressing. We are suggesting that folks bring your extra apples for pressing and a jar to take some cider home in. We will be cooking two pots of soup, one vegetarian, so if you have something to add to the soup please bring it and it will be added for a real stone soup lunch. Also, we ask that you bring your meal hardware such as silverware, bowls, plates and cups.
We will be featuring on site garden demonstrations with local experts that include topics such as ‘Winterizing your Garden’ and ‘How to make Berry Bombs’.
Also new this year will be local, urban farmer, Tracey Delamarter from 7 Tree Farm, bringing her ducks and bunnies for a kid friendly, hands-on talk about the importance of animals on the homestead.
We will hold our annual Barter Fair so bring your extra canned goods, homemade goodies or whatever tickles your fancy to give away and you may leave with something delicious and/or something you have always wanted in exchange.
Our raffle event is the main vehicle that Sustainable Renton uses at this event to raise money. We will be offering some fabulous prizes donated by local artisans and businesses. If you have anything you would like to donate to our raffle table it would be most appreciated.
