We’d love to meet you in real life!
Here are some public events where Hidden Harvest will have a presence — either as a presenter or simply as an interested participant.
Things are winding down for 2015! Time to take a cue from the squirrels and start stashing your nuts for winter. Check back from time to time and keep up to date on our winter activities through our newsletter.
