The Second Annual Seeds of Hope Harvest Festival Returns to Dartmouth
After a brief rain delay, the second annual Seeds of Hope Harvest Festival is finally returning to Dartmouth this weekend.
On Saturday, October 8th, the SouthCoast community is invited to attend a free event at the Conquerers for Christ Church located at 972 Reed Rd in Dartmouth.
In 2021, the community garden was presented to the public in the form of a harvest festival and the success of the event is coming back around again for a second helping.
"Last year went really well," Kayla Mateus- the program director said, "We had about a hundred people attend and hoping to double that count this year. It's a community effort in creating a garden that's more of a sanctuary where we're going to host garden tours, vendors, growers, crafters, artisans, and so much more at the festival."
Looking for something fun to do with the family? This year they'll be activities for both kids and adults such as corn hole, sack races, bounce houses, rock painting, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and crafts for all ages.
Kevin's Kitchen, a local food truck vendor, will also be at the festival cooking up some delicious homestyle food.
"It's a great opportunity for people to get together within the community, celebrate the year, support local growers and artists, and just have fun together," Mateus said, "It's a great way to spread the word about the garden and all that we do."
If anyone has any questions concerning the harvest festival or looking to get involved with the community garden, you can reach out to Mateus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
