Lynn Grows Celebrates Successful Launch Party
After much preparation, Lynn Grows celebrated its transition into a new phase of work with a Launch Party this past Saturday. The event featured live music, delicious food (including fruit platter donations from Ernie's Harvest Time), activities including salad taste tests and a vermicompost bin, and stories from steering committee members about why they got involved in this work. A video about Lynn Grow's work that was made with the help of LCTV was also premiered. It features interviews with John Wang of The Food Project, Makenzie Mackin of the Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance, Alex Cuevas of the Bodega Makeover Project, and Rediet Habtegebriel, who is a high school student from Lynn. You can watch the video here if you missed it!
Going forward, Lynn Grows is excited to incorporate more community members into its work improving the local food system. If you would like to be involved in some way, please fill out this form, or email email@example.com.
