The inaugural Farm2Fork Fest, sponsored by GMO-Free Florida and MAM Miami, will promote organic farming and sustainable living. This free event is set for Saturday, May 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. in Miami’s Wynwood arts district.
“Living well begins with eating well, and eating well begins with how our food is grown,” says a press release issued by GMO-Free Florida.
The event will combine “the magic of a street fair; the tastes and aromas of an organic farmers market; the pulse of live music; and the fun of hands-on classes, cooking demos, pop-up gardens and mind-expanding talks,” the release explains.
Although the event will be fun, it will have a serious side, too. Workshops will provide information about GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and other issues, including how to protect pollinators and how to restore and regenerate the U.S. food and farming systems.
Other activities will include learning about seasonal planting, soil, permaculture and other topics at the on-site Farm School. And, of course, plenty of food vendors will be on hand.
