Thank YOU for Celebrating Our 7th Bearthday with Us!
Not a cloud in the sky, a freshly painted mural adorning our water cistern, the smell of delicious fried egg tacos, mimosas being poured, our amazing vendors and event partners doing what they do best, and the buzz of an urban farm alive with farm friends young and old. We couldn’t have dreamed up a better celebration for our 7th Bearthday and we can’t thank you enough for being part of what makes our one-acre site so special. This experiment — as we like to call it — in urban ag needs both farmers and a community to help support it and RCF is lucky to have both of these. This was our first official farm event introducing our new farm partner, Infinity Hundred Farms (IHF), and we are so excited to see the site transformed by David McConnell and his team. We hope you will stop by the Farm to see for yourself how our one-acre site evolves this year. Oh, and while you are here, be sure to take a selfie with our new resident, (larger-than-life) lagomorph “Sir Walter Rabbit,” painted by none other than Jenny Eggleston.
