Field Trip to Kiwanis Meeting, Farmers Market

Nitzy, Nick, Carlos, Antonio and Steve joined Mr. Dell and Ben on a twofold mission of fundraising and fun. First stop was the Biscayne Bay Marriott on 16th street, where we were invited to the monthly Kiwanis Club meeting, to give a presentation about our garden program. Kiwanis of Biscayne Bay, through our own Maggie Arias(who joined us for lunch as well), donated $1000 last year with a promise of $500 more contingent on the presentation we made at today's lunch.
We were treated royally and fed well. We got to meet and speak in front of some of Miami's legal elite, winning their admiration and pledge for continuing support. Thanks guys!

After lunch we made our weekly appearance at the Overtown Roots in the City farmers market on NW 10th Street and 2nd Avenue, selling our fresh organic produce to raise money for a new shade house.
Thanks to all our loyal customers for the great support and encouragement. The students are ecstatic to be meeting so many nice people and trying so many cool new things!
