Partridge Creek Farm is having a Harvest Ball at the Ishpeming Elks Club. This is an interesting and positive collaboration. Most of the people in the Ishpeming Lions Club are also involved with Partridge Creek Farm- it is our clubs primary project. Partridge Creek Farm also had the honor last year of becoming a district project of Lions District 10.
Partridge Creek Farm is a non-profit educational farm with programs in Farm to School education, youth addicts in recovery, and downtown community garden building. We hired our first licenced teacher this year and we are looking to expand our programs with Great Lakes Recovery Center to include adults in recovery as well.
A few years ago we collaborated with the Ishpeming Elks club to build a large community garden and berry patch on the site of their club house, which happened to have quite a bit of unused land down by the Partridge Creek. On October 19th we are hosting a formal fundraiser at their lodge at that site. We have many collaborators, from schools, universities, Recovery centers, health organizations and other non-profits who will be there to explain what they are doing and how we have built programs together.
I would love to have you there to show off this blossoming initiative. Please consider making the trip to help us with this fundraising event.
Thanks, Lion Dan
