Redland GrowFest! a celebration of all things local

 

redland-growfest

The fifth annual Redland GrowFest! is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 15-16 at the Redland Fruit & Spice Park in South Dade.

The festival features edible plants, growing info, local food including cookoffs, art, tours, giveaways and kids stuff.

GrowFest! is about connecting the dots between the farm or garden and the dinner table. It’s about providing the knowledge and materials to grow, forage, buy, prepare, and eat good, local, seasonal food. Engaging the public, encouraging and giving them the tools to grow some of their own will enable them to gain a better appreciation of what it takes for farmers to produce the food we all eat, and whet folks’ appetites for the best, healthiest, and freshest produce.

$15 admission for one day, $8 for one day kids 6-11 online advance purchase. Children 5 years and under free.
