Cultivating Communities Market

Support our Cultivating Communities students at their upcoming market! These students will be selling pesto, hot sauce, plant starts, flower arrangements, seeds, herbs, and some fresh produce they have grown and harvested themselves.

Cultivating Communities is a partnership between Longue Vue and the Waldo Burton Memorial School where students learn about gardening, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. The money the students raise from their market sales will be donated to a nonprofit of their choosing at the end of the school year.

Visit the Forecourt in front of the main house between 1:30PM and 2:45PM to support this project.
