LEAP Farm Fundraiser for Slow Food Foothills

Slow Food Foothills Fundraiser at LEAP Farm will take place on October 28th from 2:00-6:30pm

We are celebrating our first birthday by including farm tours and fundraising at this event, though it COSTS NOTHING TO ATTEND as it is a traditional monthly potluck gathering. The difference being, we expect 200 people! Many fundraising “add-ons” will be on-hand that day: the meats from the cooker, local hops and vines, wood-fired breads and pizza’s, and our FIRST EVER HARVEST SALE.

Event Timeline: Sunday, October 28

2:00 – 4:00 — Farm tours and tips

2:00 – 6:30 — HARVEST SALE

4:30 – 6:30 — Potluck Dinner with live music from New Five Cents
