Celebrate Another Harvest With LEAF
Every year LEAF's annual Harvest Festival is your chance to get a taste of great local food in front of Lakewood Public Library. This year's celebration of the local fall bounty will be held on Thursday, September 21 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the front porch of the Main Library.
Food Sample a delicious variety of soup from some of LEAF's very own amateur home chefs. Get a delicious, healthy dinner for the whole family (with an at-will donation)!
Pie Bake-Off Break out your best pie recipe to enter in our annual Pie Bake-Off! All pies should be dropped off at the Harvest Festival no later than 5:30 p.m. along with a list of ingredients. Or, just come ready to taste test from the best of our home bakers.
Activities for the Whole Family H2O volunteers will be doing face painting and selling repurposed containers that make great planters or organizers. Plus local food themed arts and crafts for the kids (and adults) will help remind them of the bountiful harvest in the winter months ahead.
Vendors All of your favorite LEAF Night vendors in one night - get out and shop local!
Music Listen to some of the best in local music with your friends and family on the front porch of the Library - and break out those dancing shoes!
LEAF Merchandise Be sure to stop by the LEAF information table and pick up your official LEAF merchandise. All proceeds from the sales of these official LEAF items, ranging from cook books to t-shirts to coffee mugs, benefit LEAF's local food programs!
We will also have a raffle of two water-bath canners filled with produce and other goodies that night - all proceeds will go to support LEAF's mission for the continued development of a more sustainable, healthful and economically viable community through environmentally responsible actions producing broad access to fresh, local foods, knowledge and culture.
