It is so incredible to see how much this event has flourished over the years and excited for the kickoff this weekend. Check here for event listings and like the Cultivate KC facebook page for updates on events and special features on participating farms. Order tickets for the tour here.
This is a great event to participate in and to immerse your children in the workings of local urban farms. If you are not from Kansas City be sure to check on your local urban farm network and tour a farm or maybe even volunteer. Some farms are more than willing to offer some nice healthy veggies as wages for a little work on the farm!
If you are not able to make it to this event seek out another way for your children to explore a local farm, or your own backyard, and learn a little about how healthy, sustainable food is grown. HINT : children tend to like food that they grow themselves!
