Come to the Discovery Garden on Saturday, July 17th from 11:00-12:00 for our annual potato harvest.  Join our volunteers to help harvest organically grown potatoes, play games, and enjoy the beautiful one-acre garden.  Each participant will be able to take home a few potatoes.  The rest will be donated to local charities for people who are in need of food. So come learn a little, play a little, and get a few potatoes for your efforts!
