Guests began to arrive on Broadfork Farm around 10:30AM for Real Local RVA’s second annual Farm Tour & Cookout. At 11AM the guests gathered their homemade, boxed lunches provided by Ellwood Thompson’s and cookie provided by Libbie Market and boarded the buses.
The first stop on the tour was Tricycle Urban Ag located in Richmond. Tricycle is Richmond’s leading urban agriculture nonprofit organization, and they are on a mission to grow a healthy future through urban agriculture. Since breaking ground on their first garden, they have engaged thousands of neighbors and show that the simple act of growing food is an incredibly powerful way to impact the overall health of our community.
