Hard work, community spirit and good food were celebrated at the 5th annual Beaudoin Village Hidden Treasure Community Garden Harvest on September 19, 2013. Once again the Beaudoin Village Community with the support of the HHA and Nuestras Raices have successfully cultivated this once abandoned parcel of land into an oasis which has provided much needed fresh produce.
