Celebrating summer with CHP’s Sunflower Festival

Grafton – On a beautiful, sunny weekend, July 28 and 29, many patrons came out to enjoy the Community Harvest Project’s Sunflower Festival.

The event, held at the CHP’s farm in North Grafton, included a Sunflower Maze and the chance to pick flowers.  Many happy faces were seen leaving the farm with a freshly cut bunch of zinnias.  (Unfortunately, Mother Nature and her rains from last week prevented the picking of sunflowers.)

The festival was also a chance to raise funds for the Community Harvest Project’s initiatives on hunger relief.  For more information on CHP and how you can help, visit www.community-harvest.org.
