Hearty harvest on Avenue B
The Sixth St. and Avenue B Garden held its 21st Annual Harvest Festival on a beautiful afternoon last Saturday. Clockwise from top left: Emily Burford, 15 months old, enjoyed a veggie burger with a little help from her mom, Kim; fresh off his primary victory for Assembly in the East Side’s 74th District, Brian Kavanagh and friend Jessica Freireich sampled the festival’s outdoor music, food and fun; Tess Balsley, 3½, pulled a raffle winner’s name out of the bin and handed it to Joanee Freedom, one of the garden’s founders, to announce the winner (Prizes and gifts were donated by local merchants, with proceeds going to support the garden.); Judy Zaborowski filled her plate with savory corn and chicken grilled by Jesse Cooday.
