Harvest Festival

Added on Friday 7 Oct 2011

This Saturday! 8th October, 12 midday - 4pm The final Harvest event of 2011 is being hosted by Woodlands Community Garden on West Princes St, this Saturday . The NVA Glasgow Harvest is a celebration of local food being hosted by community gardens in the South, East, North and West of the city this autumn. An irreverent homage to the village fete - centred on the Harvest Meal - each celebration will feature live music, communal cooking, food sharing, workshops and competitions. New work by visual artists will draw inspiration from the people and garden spaces that make urban growing in Glasgow so unique. It's a family friendly event, with facepainting and other children's activities.
