Growing Community: It’s A Farm Affair
September 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join The Campaign Against Hunger (formerly Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger) for It’s A Farm Affair, their 2nd Annual Growing Community celebration! The FREE event will be held at the Far Rock Farm in the beachside community of Far Rockaway, Queens on September 20 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The entrance to the event is on Beach Channel Drive.
They are opening the doors of their half-acre Urban Agro-Ecological Center to local residents, friends, and family for a free celebration of stewardship and giving in the community. There will be music, dancing, and delicious food from the featured chef Troy Fischer. The farmers market will also be open for anyone looking to purchase freshly harvested fruits and vegetables at low prices.
During the evening, four members of the community who have demonstrated a dedication to community stewardship and service will be honored:
