Alleycat Acres, a volunteer-driven urban farming collective is hosting a fundraiser tonight from 6:00 – 10:00 pm at Grey Gallery, 1512 11th Avenue on Capitol Hill. The suggested donation is $5-20 at the door.

Music for the event will be provided by DJ Colby B. and Brett Law, and there will be a raffle with prizes from local businesses. See more details at the website.

Sunday was the first ever harvest day at Alleycat Acres’ Beacon Hill farm site. Good Magazine filmed the harvest, and the volunteers harvested 129 pounds of lettuce, spinach, turnips, radishes, chard, and green onions, and delivered 120 pounds of the produce to the Beacon Avenue Food Bank.
