The weekends of this early harvest season have been merry, musical and delicious!  Thanks to everyone who has joined us for our performances throughout the metro.  We’ve had capacity crowds and beautiful weather!  We thank the Soo Line Community Garden, the Hamline-Midway Coalition, the First Lutheran Church of the Reformation, the City of St. Louis Park, the Urban Farming Community Garden and the Gateway Trail Community Garden for being great hosts.
