The Hunger Coalition will host a Bloom Farm Potluck on Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The Bloom Farm is at the eastern end of Quigley Road and is accessed by way of Fox Acres Road on the way to Wood River High School.
Participants are invited to bring a favorite dish to share, take a stroll through the farm and celebrate community. Activities will include rock painting and a basket-weaving demonstration by Manon Gaudreau, co-manager of the Wood River Seed Library. Gaudreau will explain how to make a basket from shrub and tree prunings, starting at 5:40 p.m.
