Thanks to everyone who made this year’s Pie Social a huge success! We loved spending time with you outside, and your devoted pie consumption helped us meet our goal of $2500!
This year’s Pie Social, on Saturday May 21 from 1-5pm, took on a festival flavor, with fun activities including multiple Pie Walks, face painting and other games to play while you are in between pie slices. This annual delicious event offers the opportunity to try different locally concocted pies, get to know SEEDS, meet the DIG Youth Crew, hang out in the garden and enjoy a beautiful day.
The Pie Social was started by the DIG Youth Crew to help raise funds for summer salaries. The Durham Inner-city Gardener (DIG) Program empowers high school youth to develop social entrepreneurial and leadership skills through growing food. We have a year round crew working the Market Garden and our crew more than doubles in the summer.
