Join us for a mid-spring dance party at Short's Brewing Company, featuring DJ Ras Marco, a local food special, the launch of the Crosshatch spring matching gift campaign, and the first ever Imperial Crosshatch Beer, Honey Root Field Ale, made with local honey, hops, maple syrup and sweet potatoes.
We'll have an arts interlude with live music and poetry from Crosshatch's Long Memory Project and news about Crosshatch's big projects on 8th Street in TC and the 52 acre "Hatchquarters" site in Bellaire.
Your dollars will support Crosshatch to offer:
monthly informal gatherings for local artists
on-farm, education for growers
summer tours of area farms—by growers, for growers
artist residencies that connect elders and their wisdom to young artists
guilds that connect growers to growers
funds for our other programs such as the Chicken Coupe, Preservation Station, the Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference and day-long intensives on all aspects of growing
Bring yourself, your family and a slew of friends for a fun time at Shorts on a Saturday afternoon.
This event is free, with donations toward the matching gift campaign accepted and profits from food and beverage going to benefit Crosshatch.
