Join us to celebrate the opening of St. Joseph’s Farm Stand and spring planting of the gardens! Lettuce Grow will feature heavy hors d’ oeuvres by Chef Matt Bell of South on Main and will include libations, tours of the building, a silent auction, farm stand, and live music. Also, adding to the evening will be an art show including artists Kevin Kresse, Jennifer Wilson, Steven Rockwell, V. L. Cox and others. Gardener and author, Janet Carson, will be available to sign copies of her new book.
St. Joseph Center of Arkansas is hosting its second annual Lettuce Grow Fundraiser on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm on the grounds of its historic campus at 6800 Camp Robinson Road in North Little Rock. This event will support St. Joseph’s mission to preserve the historical building while continuing sustainable farming and community outreach.
St. Joseph Center of Arkansas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to preserve the former St. Joseph Orphanage which is on the National Historic Register. Through the efforts of SJCA, St. Joseph Center will return to its original roots as a self-sustaining farm. Instead of supporting an orphanage, the 56,000 sq. ft. building and 63 acre property will continue to serve and support the community through art, farming, agritourism, and agricultural education.
