South Wedge event and flower planting

We closed the event with a pop up community event in the grass at our future home at 571 South Avenue. Neighbors came by and tried a few bites of favorite dishes from our awesome deli (like vegan meatballs and vegan coconut brownies). Plus we took the opportunity to plant flowers as a symbol of all that we hope will grow as we get closer to opening in the new store.

Families joined us at the event to take part in the ceremonial flower planting.
