The nonprofit Virginia Free Farm - 75 Green Ln Dr, Kents Store, VA will hold an Open House and Field Day at noon on July 10 for the community to learn more about their mission of providing quality, nutritious food to the needy in Central Virginia, as well as educational opportunities for children, volunteer opportunities for adults and information regarding their food justice initiatives and seed saving.
There will be games, refreshments, raffles, a plant sale, vendors and the opportunity to spend time with pigs, chickens, pheasants, turkeys, ducks, rabbits and more.
Virginia Free Farm produces thousands of pounds of vegetables, poultry, eggs, mushrooms, fruit, honey and wild edibles each year for donation to the Richmond and Charlottesville metro areas. Their practices draw from sustainable permaculture techniques, striving to improve the land and benefit the health of community members. They offer classes teaching children about indigenous farming practices, foraging and seed saving. This year will see a U-Pick garden accepting EBT and offering Virginia Fresh Match to facilitate access to naturally grown, pesticide free and humanely raised foods from a local source.
