As a part of the overflow from The Garden initiative, Rick & Cindy Boosey opened World Garden for a traditional Thanksgiving meal to anyone that may not have been able to enjoy otherwise.

Starting 6 am and lasting until approx. 9 pm, over 150+ volunteers gathered to spend a little time giving back to our community. 

It was truly a special day that began with distributing meals throughout NW Arkansas to…

Then at 12 pm, 3 pm and 6 pm people came to sit and enjoy an incredible meal surrounded by friends, family, music and joy.  We asked some of the volunteers why they had come to spend Thanksgiving this way…

we did grab a few pictures of the evening and volunteers, but out of respect for the privacy of those that came to eat we tried to stay out of the way.

It was a great evening, and we had a chance to grab a few minutes with Rick the evening before to hear a few words from him.


To all of the people who gave of their time & resources we are super appreciative.  We could not have come together in such a way without you.  And an extra thank you to some of the sponsors that gave without any expectation of anything in return…you are incredible.
