SWAG Project hosts an annual fall harvest fundraiser to keep the SWAG Project strong! Full Bellies Fall Harvest Dinner is an outdoor dinner party held every October to celebrate the fall harvest season and another successful year at the farm.
Full Bellies Fall Harvest is an opportunity for SWAG Team members to publicly recognize those who have been instrumental at SWAG Project in the last four years and build capacity for the following season.
The celebration includes a delicious dinner prepared my guest chefs using the Newark Farm’s produce, beer, wine, beverages and h’orderves from local partners.
