As Hispanic Heritage Month 2013 approaches us, Friends of Huntington Station Latin Quarter is planning our Third Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival. Every year, our goal is to unite ALL residents and provide resources that will unify, strengthen and improve our local and regional communities. This year the event will take place Sunday, September 29th, 2013 from 1:00-‐5:00pm in Manor Field Park, Huntington Station, NY. The theme of our festival this year is “Immigration and Our Community.” **
On June 9th, 2013, from 1 to 2:30 Long Island Community Agriculture Network held the bi-lingual workshop that HSLQ supported from a donation from Xavier and Laura Palacios.
Fifteen participants listened as Heather Forest and Larry Foglia explained how to grow vegetables in small spaces, primarily containers of all kinds, with the possibilities limited only by one’s imagination. Heather and Larry are members of LICAN’s executive committee and own Fox Hollow Farm, where they grow food for a CSA of 70 families.
