Caravan 2011 April 10, Sunday

Well, that was easy!
The first NEFLCG Caravan will be visiting...

Arlington Community Garden
Tree Hill
7152 Lone Star Rd.

We are kicking off our Community Garden Caravan to coincide with the Tour de Farms. Arlington Community Garden will be the first Community Garden Caravan destination. All community gardeners are encouraged to attend and meet their gardening brethren!

Sunday, April 10 (1-5 pm) Tour de Farms! Free Event
24 area farms and community gardens will be opening their doors this Sunday so that visitors can learn more about local foods and meet the people who grow them. Fun events for the entire family will be offered at each stop.

Go to www.slowfoodfirstcoast.com to see a listing of participating farms, what events they plan to offer, and how to take the tour. Arlington Community Gardens is one of the stops and in addition to information about composting and fun activities for kids, Chef Scott Schwartz from 29 South in Fernandina Beach will be demonstrating how to prepare one of his signature dishes (which uses local ingredients) at 1:30 and 3:30. Bring the family and have some fun!
