We had so much fun at the Harvest Festival, yesterday! We had beautiful weather and lots of friendly faces come out to see the farm and join the fun! We are so thankful to all those who helped UMSFP start the year with a bang, especially the event volunteers, the local institutions and businesses who graciously donated their time and food, all the student groups who came out, the UMSFP advisory board, the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum, and everyone else who came to the event or helped in even the smallest way--Your time and contribution were truly appreciated! Thank you!
