COLUMBIA - The Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture held its third annual Harvest Hootenanny Fundraiser on Saturday.

Held at the organization's Urban Farm, the event featured a square dance, a live auction and live music. Volunteers grilled Legacy Beef Hamburgers and served wine provided by St. James Winery.

Co-founder Adam Saunders said the fundraiser will help support hands-on education and outreach programs for the organization.

"We do a lot of education here from little kids to people who want to become farmers to people who want to grow vegetables in their own backyard," said Saunders.
