At the end of October, we had our annual Harvest Celebration at Blackhawk Courts Farm & garden. Every year, as we wrap up on the farm, we like to end the season by inviting folks from the community to come over to the farm to share a meal with us. Yatte makes sure he plans and grows enough vegetables specifically for this event.
This year we offered pull pork sliders, coleslaw, chili, salad, and sweet potato pie. All the vegetables used in the meal came from the farm. We had plenty of food and many residents took home multiple plates or came back for seconds. By the end of the day there was very little left.
The weather was perfect, and we had over 40 people from the community join us for this event. It is always nice to meet new residents and serve them in this manner. It’s another opportunity to connect with them, and fellowship over a meal
We are planning our Thanksgiving event in partnership with Zion Lutheran Church. During this event fresh greens from the farm will be provided to accompany the turkey and other items that will be given away to residents of Blackhawk Courts.
Finally, we are also planning a sit-down holiday meal with the Blackhawk residents in December. This will be the first time we are doing this post pandemic in over two years. We are excited and are looking forward to both events.
