Gearing up for their 3rd annual Slow Food Fair, Jones Valley Urban Farm will be hosting a “Party in the Garden” on Sunday, May 23rd. If you aren’t familiar with the Jones Valley Urban Farm, let us fill you in on what you’ve been missing.
JVUF is a community based, non- profit urban farm sitting on 3 acres of vacant property in downtown Birmingham. They grow organic produce and flowers while teaching the community about healthy living. You may have seen them set up at one of our favorite Saturday morning hangouts, the Pepper Place Market. Their mission is to be a model sustainable urban farm that teaches youth and the Birmingham community about sustainable agriculture and nutrition through outdoor experiential education, while being committed to making healthy food available and affordable for a broad spectrum of the community.
The Slow Food Fair is your chance to check them out. There will be musical acts, food samplings, gardening workshops on the hour, and a mini farmers market. Many of Birmingham’s fine restaurants will be partnering up for this event including, Bottega, Bottletree, Cafe Dupont, Jim N Nicks, Rojo, Cantina and More!
Don’t miss this afternoon of fun with the family.
Sunday, May 23rd, 2:00pm – 6:00pm
Tickets are $20 and proceeds will benefit Jones Valley Urban Farms education programs. Buy online or at the gate.
*In the event of rain, the event will be moved across the street to the YMCA Youth Center.
