Near East-Side Harvest Festival October 1, 2011

Dear Community Residents, Businesses, and Organizations:

On behalf of Full Circle Soil, I would like to announce and encourage you to participate in our

first annual Near East-side Harvest Festival scheduled for October 1, 2011. This is a call to action

in cooperation among the various community businesses and organizations. We all share a

common goal of bettering the community. We are all aware of the economic hurt and food

injustice our community is facing. Our national government is unable to cure this sickness on their

own and are too distant to do so. We have to take responsibility for our own community’s health,

wellbeing, and economic future!

One way we can do this is by participating in this year’s Near East-Side Harvest Festival. The Festival

is scheduled for October 1, 2011 and will kick off Local Food’s Week. Our festival will prove to be a

celebration of our individual choices at the table and display the resources available to us in our

own community. Profits from the Harvest Festival will be used to assist local organic growers,

provide entrepreneurial education, and capital for community based activities.

We invite you to join this grass roots effort to educate our community about affordable, healthy food

alternatives. As a community, we will take the steps necessary to provide a healthier, more economically

secure future.
Again, thank you,

Shevann Atkins, Administrative Assistant

Full Circle Soil
