On Saturday, Sept. 21, guests at Wakeman Town Farm’s second annual Grassroots Harvest Dinner were greeted with the John Wesley quote “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”

This fundraiser hopes to do just that. Proceeds will go towards a number of causes, including a new roof for the farmhouse, irrigation for the farm’s gardens, programs for campers and interns and restoring native plant life on the farm, to name a few. Food was provided by local farmers and prepared by the staffs of Bar Sugo, LeFarm and Barcelona.
