The garden threw the hippest party of the semester three weeks ago on a crisp, sunny Saturday afternoon. We wanted to celebrate the end of our first (and very succesful!) growing season, so we opened the gates and invited students and the Cambridge community to Harvestfest, a jubilee of live music, pumpkin-carving, apple-cider pressing, face-painting, chef demos, free food, and more!
We had a fantastic turnout. As you can see from the photo above, the garden was filled with students, families, tourists (one of the designated tour bus parking spaces is right in front of the plot) and passersby who were enticed inside the gate by the sweet music from our local bands.

The Clover Food Lab Truck served up delicious locally-sourced vegetarian food. They just opened up a brand-new restaurant in Harvard Square, a mere stone’s throw away from the garden. Practically everything on the menu is $5-6 dollars or less, which is impressive given the quality and freshness of the ingredients. Check them out at their new location on Holyoke St!
We are very excited to announce our first annual Harvest Festival! Stop by next Saturday from noon to three to partake in some Fall Festivities in the garden. more info below!

Saturday October 16th, from 12-3 PM (rain or shine) at the garden plot (47 Holyoke Place)
Come celebrate the end of a successful first growing season with us!
We’ll be saying goodbye to summer growing (and the last of the tomatoes) with live music from Harvard & Boston-based bands, local chef and student cooking demos, apple cider pressing, pumpkin carving, and more.
We hope to see you there!
