This is super-exciting news:
A FALL FEST w/ a TWIST!
Friends of the West End Park , NPU-T’s Agriculture Committee, Rose Circle Garden, People’s Victory Garden, Truly Living Well (awaiting confirmation), Creating Vibrant Communities-Urban Farms along with other amazing urban agriculture enthusiasts will come together to plan our 2nd Annual Atlanta Fall Summit on Urban Farming + Gardens. This year, we’re adding a children’s track w/ workshops and activities specifically designed for our young ones. Last year, this event was a great success-people came from different parts of the city and other states to participate. This year we have more folks involved in the planning and we know it will be a huge success!
The tentative date is October 24, 2009 (Saturday). Location to be confirmed-Good Shepherd Community Church’s beautiful urban farm and West End Park.
Our next planning meeting will be either September 9th or 10th, Stephanie will confirm early next week. I’ll immediately post the confirmed date and location on the blog.
As part of the event there will be workshops on gardening, wellness, environment, art, composting and there will be craft/harvest vending so if you know anyone that may be interested in participating please contact me. We will also have garden tours, a “free market”+ bartering space and an informal seed swap. We look forward to an amazing event! If you have any questions or you’re interested in sponsoring this event (as a business or individual donor) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (your donation is tax-deductible). Other organizations are welcome to participate, if you’d like to become part of the planning committee contact email@example.com. We welcome cross-community representation. : )
