Haley House Bakery Café Turns Seven 
bakerycafe2005On August 29th, 2005, Haley House Bakery Café opened its doors with few certainties and a lot of enthusiaism.  Now seven years later, the Bakery Café is proud to announce that sales are covering 90% of the overall $900,000 budget.  The remaining 10% is covered through grants and individual donations.  Join us in celebrating as we reopen today, September 5th, for the fall season!  
Haley House keeps growing! (vegetables, that is!)

In a recent trip to Noonday Farm, Take Back the Kitchen students learned first-hand how to harvest potatoes, cabbage, onions, beets, and tomotaes.  Two more trips to this beautiful, biodynamic farm are scheduled for September 22 and October 27.  If you are interested in joining us for an all-day (8:30am-4:30pm) trip to the farm, please email Robin Saunders

Produce is also rolling in from the McKinley Garden, where Haley House is busy preparing lesson plans for garden and cooking classes that will be held throughout the school year in partnership with McKinley South End Academy.  If you are interested in joining us in the garden - whether at volunteer work days or during garden and cooking classes with the McKinley School - please email us at and friend us on Facebook.
