Down on the Farm Party
Thank you for helping us celebrate this the season of growing. We were thrilled to have such tremendous support, and we extend a special thank you to our Down on the Farm Party sponsors – Bon Secours Richmond Health System, Relay Foods, and Ellwood Thompson.
We also thank Grow RVA and the food trucks for being with us. We challenged each truck to incorporate our collard greens into their menus! They did a great (and delicious) job!
Our Farm serves as a working educational model of urban agriculture using sustainable growing methods, while also inspirational space for children, teachers and families, and a source of local food production. Our produce is distributed to Relay Food customers across the region, restaurants in the city, at our Farm Stand in Church Hill and now through our new “Healthy Corner Stores” Get Fresh! East End Program. Through this program, we are directly addressing food deserts and food access in our community by growing and distributing our local, healthy produce to corner and neighborhood markets in the East End. Our Farm Expansion will help feed this important program that we hope to extend across our region.
Take a look at all the fun! Hope to see you next time!
