The Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture‘s hosting a great community event this Saturday. The Footprint plans to take pictures, but hopefully you can experience it for yourself!
Who’s invited: Everyone. Seriously.
What this entails: Free food, music and fun! Meet urban farmers and check out a sweet barn that Billy Froeschner made out of reclaimed wood.
When to hoot some nannies: Saturday, October 30 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Where we’ll dig shins: CCUA’s urban farm on the corner of Smith and Fay.
Why this? Why now? Why not? It’s harvest season, and the community wants to celebrate!
Here’s what the CCUA has to say on their event page:
The Center is celebrating a successful growing season and wants to share the harvest with you. Volunteers will be giving tours, and information will be available about the Center’s programs. Event coordinator Billy Polansky says, “If you’ve heard about us, but haven’t been to any events, this is the opportunity to come meet your urban farmers. We want to celebrate this year’s harvest with you, down on the farm…in the city. Come on out for food, fun, and music, its gonna be a hootenanny!”
Fun fact: The CCUA’s garden on Ash and St. Joseph was started by Adam Saunders and Sustain Mizzou as a research farm.
