Preserve the Preserves: 7th Annual Urban Farm and Harvest Festival

Via PixelAnarchy

Slow down, or you could miss the Open Space Visitor Center (6500 Coors NW) as you attempt to keep up with the traffic on Coors that seems to have pierced the ever-loving sound barrier. Then you see it: 144 jetty jack angle irons sticking out of the ground; Robert Wilson’s homage to the flight path of birds guides you in. Don’t miss the 7th annual Urban Farm and Harvest Festival on Sunday, Sept. 14. It’s a great opportunity to explore nature and partake in the bountiful harvest of fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables delivered by local farmers.

In keeping with this year’s theme, “Preserving the Harvest,” events start at 10am with workshops in fruit tree selection, basic beekeeping and a wild plant walk. Stroll the stands of various local farmers and artisans. Partake in live music and food demos throughout the day, as well as kid workshops, juggling, magic shows and other events like a 3-legged race and a hay-bale ride for family fun. Have lunch at Soo Bak Korean BBQ Food Truck, and satisfy your sweet tooth with ice cream from Pop Fizz. Event is free. Open Space Visitor Center • Sun Sep 14 • 10am-4pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
