On Saturday we had our annual Harvest Celebration Banquet with over 150 people in attendance to help us celebrate the tangible results of our spring/summer DIRT GROUP!!! Although last year we had a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, this year’s spaghetti meal was equally well received including the homemade from scratch Italian Parmesan bread made with some of our own herbs grown this season.
Some participants shared their thoughts about DIRT GROUP:
“It was fun because I made new friends and found out things about myself that I didn’t even know.”
“It helped me deal with hard times.”
“DIRT GROUP is helping me learn about things that I couldn’t learn on my own. It helped me learn about respect and it’s helping me learn about mindfulness”
“The most fun was the harvest banquet although every group member wasn’t there but it was a blast!”
“I enjoyed growing stuff I’ve never heard of”.
“I’ve learned I’m not the only one with a separated family”
“Helped me learn to stay on task”
“It helped me learn to follow instructions”
“I learned how to have healthy conversations with other people”
“DIRT GROUP can be summed up in one word: AWESOME!!!”
