Mad Dads and Garden Dreams Hold Harvest Festival For Kids


Members of the Pittsburgh chapter of MAD Dads came together with the Garden Dreams Urban Farm to host a Harvest Festival. The festival is the latest in a series of events MAD Dads has been having in the Hamnett Place neighborhood, dating back to the spring of last year, when the group was invited into the neighborhood by some Whitney Avenue residents. A Father’s Day picnic in June 2007 was a success, as was the one this past year, says chapter president George Spencer. This spring, at an event at Three Rivers Center for Independent Living, Spencer and Mindy Schwartz of Garden Dreams made plans for the Harvest Festival. Along with music, food and entertainment, attendees came away with free tomato plants, courtesy of Garden Dreams. Spencer says the MAD Dads will continue to have a presence in the neighborhood. Next up on the calendar is a night of Christmas caroling, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 13. For more information, call 412-371-9188.
