Eastern Shore Food Lab

May Day Celebration

The storied tradition of May Day at Washington College returns to its historic roots with a celebration of sustainable food at the campus garden.

Under the auspices of the Eastern Shore Food Lab, ESFL interns and students in the campus garden program invite the public to celebrate spring with historical foodways and future food resources — all local, seasonal, educational, and fun.
