Everyone’s Harvest believes in the power of bringing people together to create positive change. With this spirit in mind, when space is available, Everyone’s Harvest provides free space at the markets to approved non-profits, community groups, and government entities.
Since 2003, Everyone’s Harvest has been hosting community groups at the markets. Hosting these groups has lead to great market events including Folkloric traditional Mexican dancing, Otter Day in Marina, and National Kid’s Day. In addition, community groups have conducted over 200+ educational demonstrations and workshops including how to prepare a healthy local easy to prepare meal, composting, and learning about solar energy.
To find out more about up-and-coming events conducted by community groups coming to the markets visit Everyone’s Harvest Events.
Community groups have the opportunity to come out to the markets in a variety of ways including:
Outreach booths: groups present information about a topic and/or about the group to the public at the market. In this booth space setting, group participants display educational material for the public to review at the booth and/or take for free, have conversations with people who stop by the booth, and conduct pre-approved fundraising activities to support the groups’ charitable activities.
Demonstrations: groups prepare beforehand a lecture showcasing how to do an activity. At the market, at a pre-determined time the group performs this demonstration to the public.
Workshops: groups prepare beforehand a workshop showcasing how to do an activity. At
the market, at a pre-determined time the group performs the workshop which includes a lecture and an activity involving public participation during the workshop at the market.
Performances: groups’ artistic expression, including but not limited to: dance, music, or a play conducted at a pre-determined time at the market to the public.
We encourage groups to apply. If your group is interested in conducting a demonstration, workshop, or performance it is highly recommended you submit your Participant Agreement at least one month before you want to come to the market to give Everyone’s Harvest time to outreach and advertise your group coming to the market. Outreach includes a media alert to all local media outlets and an Email Blast to over 800 people.
