Come out to the Urban Farm for an evening of fun, food, and games for the whole family. The Center is celebrating a successful growing season and wants to share the harvest with you. Food and drink are free, so come out and let our Grill Masters will serve you Legacy Beef Hamburgers, Patchwork Farms Bratwurst, Urban BBQ Chicken, along with grilled Urban Veggies. We will also be roasting and selling chestnuts! Visit the silent auction for local art and goods. Listen to live music and play yard games; there will be something for everyone. Volunteers will be giving tours, and information will be available about the Center’s programs.
The CCUA is a partner with the Community Garden Coalition and a good resource for community gardens, so we hope you’ll consider supporting them. Plus, this sounds like quite a party!
Following the Hootenanny, come en masse at 8 pm Saturday to Farmageddon shown at the Stephens College Rustic Ring (Stables on Old 63). The film looks at why local food can be so pricey and hard to find. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities until government agencies forced them to stop.
*Tickets can be purchased at CJFF Box Office in the Stephens College, Columbia Foyer. Columbia Foyer is on t…he North side of Broadway after the intersection of Broadway and College.
!!Before the film, we’ll have a promo area, so if you have local CSAs or other such farming goodness to promote, please drop off your fliers, etc. to the Rustic Ring Arena (off of Old 63) by 6:45 pm on Saturday. Contact Neeley Current with questions.
