Fruit Share Wrap Up Party – October 21

Another record setting season at Fruit Share is coming to an end, and we want to celebrate our success with you – the people who made it all happen! Whether you picked fruit every week or once or twice, whether you shared your fruit with us or supported us from the sidelines, we’d love to see and meet everyone at our wrap up party on October 21st.

The party is being held at Art City (616 Broadway), and we will be working together on creative project – making a fabric banner for Fruit Share, which we can display at events and workshops. It will run from 1-3 pm and it will be a snack potluck, so bring a little something to share.
