CANCELLED: Farm to Fork Dinner 2019

From Learning Gardens Lab: 

Thank you for your time. This is a notification that, unfortunately, Farm to Fork has been cancelled for August 2019!

Good Afternoon,

I am reaching out to you today to provide an update regarding the Farm to Fork fundraiser efforts. After many twists and turns in our process, it was determined that due to a lack the continuity we were unable to make this year’s event a success. Therefore, the event staff came to the very difficult decision that they no longer had the capacity to host and carry out the event.

The collective decision was made to avoid a potentially subpar event that would tarnish the memories of last year’s event and the Learning Gardens Lab (LGL). It is a matter of personal, collective, organizational sustainability that brought the event staff to this decision.

We apologize that this is the direction that we decided to go.

If you need further clarification of the need for this decision, please reply to this email and let me know.

If you would still like to support our garden-based program, please consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation to the LGL.

Thank you,
Carith Wiseman
Development Administrator
