Garden Party Event

Garden Party Event

If you like healthy food, organic gardening, and celebrations, this is the committee for you! You’ll help clients plan, set up for, and clean up after our annual open-to-the-public dinner celebrating our community garden harvest.

Each year, on the third Thursday of September, Opportunity House pitches a huge tent in the grass next to our community garden and celebrates our clients’ harvest with a free dinner and live music. Join the Opportunity House family as we thank the garden’s supporters and celebrate the bounty grown by our clients and neighborhood gardeners. To reserve your seat(s), please RSVP. And bring a dish to share if you wish!

• When: Thursday, September 16 2021, 6-8 pm
• Where: Community Garden across from Opportunity House Beech Street at North Second Street, Reading, PA


• Julia VanTine, Shelter Program Coordinator
