Woodcrest Bruderhof Community
The Woodcrest Bruderhof Community in Rifton NY has graciously donated over 200 one-of-a-kind hand-made ceramic bowls! These beautiful pieces were made by two of Woodcrest’s young “potters in training.” The potters were happy and excited to participate in an event that helps the hungry in our region, while gaining real-world experience throwing, painting and glazing bowls. They did a terrific job! Thank you to Woodcrest and these talented young men.
