16 April 2011: DC urban farm bike tour, young farmer documentary, and local food reception

What better way to celebrate responsibly-produced, local food than by meeting farmers and food lovers in your area at an urban farm, food, film, and bicycling extravaganza on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in April?

As part of the premiere of the Greenhorns documentary that celebrates young, inspired farmers around the country, some of the DC area’s own young (and not so young) farmers will be teaching at workshops at urban farms around the city

Note: bicycles are encouraged, but not required. Attendees are welcome to participate in any portion of the activities.

The day begins at 1pm at the Mamie D. Lee community garden in Fort Totten. By 6pm, we will have made our way (by bicycle, metro, or car) to the Washington Youth Garden and Common Good City Farm, winding up at the lovely Letelier Theater in Georgetown, where there will be a screening of the documentary and a reception/mixer with delectable food and drink supplied by area producers.

Entry to the event is by donation on a sliding scale: $10-30. The theater seats 90 people maximum — first come, first seated — but all are welcome to the bike tour and reception. For more information, please contact maureen(at)arcadiafood(dot)org.
