Block Party!

Boone Street Block Party 2012!

Thank you so  much to everyone who came out to the Boone Street block party, and especially to all of the volunteers who helped cook, serve food, set up and break down, and otherwise help us coordinate! It was so amazing to see family members and loved ones chatting with Boone Street neighbors, Farm Alliance friends, and more. The event was a dream come true and a great way to celebrate our second year at the garden. 

Check out our Facebook page or Picasa album for a full look at all of the photos! 

We had tons of barbeque with all the regular hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, and sausage, plus some healthier foods such as Cheryl's homemade potato salad and swiss chard greens, and a very large veggie chili pie I made using Boone Street tomatoes, peppers, and black eyed peas. Yum!

Lots of kid's activities too, including face painting! Check out this amazing handiwork.

Baltimore Showstoppers Marchign Band was a great hit! Photos don't do it justice, I hope to have a video posted soon! The band really brought the crowds.

My man Lee brought a rabbit and two chickens for a petting zoo! The chickens are behind the wire in the shed, but we let the rabbit hop around in a little hay bale corral.

At the end of the night we had popcorn and played a short video made by Cheryl's friends about the garden, and another stop motion animation film about being outdoors. The video was another great look back at the past year, and we can't wait to show it to you all. Stay tuned for the release in about a month!

We had so much fun at the party! Thanks again everyone.
