Fondy Food Center and Walnut Way leveraged a multi-year partnership by celebrating the end of the season with the Harvest Day festival. On Saturday, September 11, 2021, the Harvest Day festival came alive with the sights and sounds of the diverse cultures that make up Lindsay Heights and Milwaukee, demonstrating this year’s theme, the Celebrating Community With Honor, Tradition and Healing. Together, we celebrated the abundance that working collectively creates!
In partnership with Fondy Food Center, the event was held at Fondy Park adjacent to the Fondy Farmers Market. The park holds a strong example of our mission of environmental stewardship, civic engagement, and economic prosperity in action. Our Blue Skies Landscaping helped to install the park which mitigates stormwater from our sewer system helping to protect Lake Michigan! The project, coordinated by City of Milwaukee’s Home GR/OWN Initiative, provided employment opportunities for our team to take part in community revitalization.
Thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible: 88NINE Radio Milwaukee, We-Energies Foundation, Superior Foods, Fondy Food Center, UW-SHOW, RitzHolman CPAs, Milwaukee Public Schools, Wisconsin Humanities.
It has been an engaging year at Walnut Way and we are grateful that you closed the harvest season with us! Please enjoy a look back at Harvest Day 2021 photos by Michael Snowden, Intellect Media Co., and Amanda Maqueia.
