Coinciding with the festival is the opening of the Sorenson Center's Unity Gardens, a community garden with 24 plots for local residents. The community garden is an addition to the Center's existing facilities: a gym, a computer lab and gallery space for community artists. The Center serves as a local meeting place and community center, affirming the diverse cultures of the community which it serves.
USEE staff hosted a table at the event, fielding questions from attendees and assisting organizers with activities. The weekend's festival is part of something bigger, so thanks to all the attendees and volunteers for contributing to the ongoing success of community cooperation.
