Fall Harvest Party

Fayetteville’s 1st Annual Crop Mob

You may not know, but October is a significant month on the food calendar, as it is National Hunger Awareness month and host to National Food Day (16th) and World Food Day (24th).

Feed Fayetteville has declared this a “Month of Action” and in celebration the Fayetteville Community Garden Coalition is partnering with the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and Feed Fayetteville to facilitate an afternoon of “crop mobs” on Thursday, October 20, 2-4 p.m.

This will be a great chance for you to accomplish some tasks at one of Fayetteville’s Community Gardens in a short amount of time with several helping hands. If you have any questions feel free to write Charity Lewis, Feed Fayetteville’s Local Foodshed Coordinator.
