This 4th annual event has grown to a larger venue with more exhibitors offering more to see, hear, taste, and do. Meet local farmers, learn about organic gardening and food, healthy options, see a film, buy local food products, and more. Admission includes classes and demonstrations on topics of beginning and advanced gardening, finding local food sources, different approaches to healthy eating, and how holistic health differs from conventional health care. The event will present the Northern Virginia debut of the documentary film Growing Cities, and also offers several hours of supervised, age-appropriate activities for children, including gardening classes, kids’ yoga, indoor recess and quiet floor play. Organic, non-GMO snacks and lunch are available for purchase.
