Description
Join us for an evening of food, community, and visionary conversation about the design and growth of the Festival Beach Food Forest. Come at 5pm if you would like to help set up or come at 6pm to join the fun. You can find out more details on Facebook: Facebook Event Page

We are blessed to have two landscape engineering interns for the food forest this summer, who are visiting us from France: Estelle and Anthony. They are focused on a number of design questions for improving the first phase of the food forest and have created a community survey to get your input on what you would like to see: https://goo.gl/forms/JitUgQHbFka3ETmx2 

At this evening potluck on August 5th, Anthony and Estelle will display their design concepts (incorporating feedback from the survey linked above) and will continue to gather input about how to best improve the Festival Beach Food Forest to serve the community.

Whether or not you can prepare a dish for the potluck, please join us! We trust that there will be plenty of food and drinks to go around. Please no glass drink containers. Comment on the Facebook event discussion page https://www.facebook.com/events/458619267855481/?active_tab=about  if you have serious allergies or other concerns about being able to comfortably attend. We will do our best to accommodate. Please also comment if you are planning to come and have a plan for what you would like to bring to the potluck!
