YMCA Farm Project to Host Community Harvest Party and Film Screening

Community Harvest Party -Film ScreeningTuesday September 23rd at 5:30pm,The YMCA Farm Project will host The Community Harvest Festival and screening of “Growing Cities”. The event is supported by various community organizations including The Kingston Land Trust. The Community Harvest Party will include kids activities, music, food and a silent auction. The event will take place at the  YMCA Farm, which is located at the intersection of Susan and Summer streets behind the YMCA of Kingston and Ulster, where you may park.

The film slated for viewing is the 2013 documentary film “Growing Cities” by Dan Susman, “that examines the role of urban farming in America and asks how much power it has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat.” The message of this film goes hand in hand with the YMCA Farm Project’s mission of educating and empowering young people by, “directly engaging them in sustainable food production on an urban farm.”  The event will be held rain or shine, (in the event of rain, the event will be moved indoors.)There will be a suggested donation of $10 for adults, $5 for kids. Donations are tax-deductible and will go towards the farm and its educational programs.
