At its Aug. 6, 2018 meeting, the St. Louis Park City Council proclaimed Aug. 23 and Aug. 24, 2018 to be the fourth annual SLP Harvest Festival.

SLP SEEDS, a nonprofit organization supporting food equity, wellbeing and resilience through life-skill education, engagement and advocacy, is partnering with Aquila Theater Arts and the children of Oak Park Village, Champions of Health in the Park Better Eating, to host the annual festival. The festival will be held Aug. 23, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., at Ainsworth Park, and Aug. 24, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., at Rainbow Park.

Everyone in the community is invited to join the potluck community harvest meal and town visioning. The Aquila Theater Arts kids from Oak Park Village will perform a theatrical interpretation of the youth book, SeedFolks, by Paul Fleischman. Afterwards, the community will discuss food equity and community desires and goals. The 2018 Harvest Festival is supported by a generous donation from the owners of Oak Park Village in appreciation for the pilot garden project on their property.
