This free community gathering will demonstrate how to incorporate sustainability practices at home, while also exploring the connections between nature and mindfulness, music and art.
The Urban Farming Festival will take place from 3:30-8:30 p.m. at 1580 Summit Rd. in Cincinnati.
Guests will learn about joining the Roselawn Community Garden by planting seeds and sampling local produce. Chickens and farm animals will be at the festival, plus tunes from local musicians. The festival will also include an urban mini-hike, s’mores, local food trucks and yoga. In all, about 30 community partners will be on-site, offering engaging activities for guests.
The Great Parks Nature Center at the Summit provides year-round opportunities to connect with nature through hands-on crafts, nature-themed activities and live animal experiences, all in an urban setting.
Great Parks expresses special thanks to funders for the festival including the Charles H. Dater Foundation, The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger Zero Waste Foundation and Great Parks Forever. The Roselawn Community Council is the event partner.
