Seton Harvest, a community supported agriculture initiative sponsored by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. The certified Naturally Grown farm uses the land in a just and environmentally conscious way by sharing locally grown food with shareholders and persons who are financially poor and hungry in our community.
In 2013 Seton Harvest harvested 47,594 pounds of produce with 10,481 pounds of produce going to many shelters, food banks and church pantries. A portion of each week’s harvest goes directly to nearly a dozen different charities serving the poor and hungry including:
+ Ozanam Family Shelter
+ St. Vincent Day Care
+ Evansville Christian Life Center
+ Many others
Since our first growing season in 2006, Seton Harvest has donated over 69,000 pounds of fresh naturally grown produce.
Join us for a FARM-TO-TABLE DINNER!
Thank you to everyone that was able to attend our first Twilight Dinner! It was a huge hit!!
The evening was beautiful, dinner, provided by Culinary Innovations, was delicious, Tin Man beer was enjoyed by all who had it and Julian Greco's music was incredible!
Watch for picture to come!
All of the proceeds from our event will help us to continue to provide the less fortunate with fresh naturally grown produce. This would not be possible with you!
