We gathered at the Jefferson lot around 4:30pm, and spent an hour or so harvesting the crop. From here, dancers dispersed along the five-block journey to the Art Produce Gallery and joined in as Eveoke's harvest-themed flash mob made its way through the business district.

Once at the gallery, guests were encouraged to thresh, winnow and mill wheat from the Jefferson lot. The new Art Produce Garden buzzed with activity as people of all ages and backgrounds mingled to talk about wheat and eat delicious food donated by several local restaurants. Performances from Eveoke's Junior Dance Troupe, the Veggie Monologues and Brothers Gunderson rounded out the evening.
