Join us for our annual milkweed harvest !
Date: Saturday September 19, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. *
Location: At L'Alpakiade - 683 Route 105, Wakefield
* In case of heavy rain, the event will be postponed to Saturday September 26 (same place, same time)
Every year around the month of September comes the time to collect milkweed pods. This event reminds us a lot of the olive harvest in Provence, which took place around the same time. Why? Because it's a convivial activity that we like to share with our loved ones to make the most of the great outdoors before winter arrives. It's an activity that even the youngest ones will love and that can easily follow social distancing!
This year, we have decided to invite all those who wish to share this harvest day with us. Don't hesitate to invite your family and friends! Lunch is on us!
