The HOMEGROWN Urban Country Fair
When: Saturday October 3 from 10am – 2:30pm
Where: Tower Grove Farmers Market in St. Louis
How: Exhibits, workshops and demos celebrating modern homesteading and how we’re connecting to good food, farmers and the earth. Hands-on, interactive and educational. Kickass music from * Scotland Yard Gospel Choir Brothers Lazaroff and The Northwoods!
What: What are you waiting for – get involved! If you are in the St. Louis area and want to hold a workshop please email Cornelia at FarmAid.org.

*Sadly, SYGC were in a terrible van accident last week and will not be making it to the Fair. We wish them the speediest of recoveries! And, unfortunately, the urban farm bike tour has been cancelled. Insurance companies are a drag.
