It truly is harvest time here in Maryland, and thanks to the amazing work of local gardeners and urban farmers, that’s just as evident in the heart of the city as it is out in the rolling countryside. There’s so much food being grown and harvested right here in Baltimore that it kind of blows our minds, actually. Almost every local urban farm is always happy for volunteers and to provide folks with information and education about growing your own food, organic farming, and nutritious, seasonal eating. And nowhere is that more apparent than at the Real Food Farm’s annual Urban Farm & Food Fair– an outright celebration of all things urban farming.
This Saturday, September 6th, the Real Food Farm (with the support of the Farm Alliance and Slow Food Baltimore) will host an entire afternoon of farmy fun. Not only will there be an array of urban farms present with fresh produce for sale (of course), there will also be cooking classes and informational booths from sustainability-focused groups around Baltimore. If this isn’t registering on your fun-meter yet, there will also be Farm Olympics (is that like shot put with balls of compost?), scavenger hunts (find the thrown balls of compost?), face painting, and more. So come on down and get in on the harvest time action.
The Urban Farm & Food Fair takes place Saturday, Sept 6th from 2pm-5pm. The Real Food Farm is located on the Lake Clifton High School Campus at 2801 St. Lo Drive in Baltimore. For more information, visit www.realfoodfarm.org.
