Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Village!

Amanda Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Village has been buzzing ever since doors at the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre two hours ago. Farmers, fans and advocates have been meeting in the space to share knowledge and experiences with one another, making Farm Aid a truly unique festival experience.

For first time Farm Aid goers, the HOMEGROWN Village is a meeting space for everyone at the concert. Exhibitors from North Carolina and across the country line the tent’s walls, eager to share their stories and inform concertgoers about their work with good food and sustainability. In today’s HOMEGROWN Village, you have the chance to stop and chat at the Cotton of the Carolinas booth, learning how this year’s Farm Aid t-shirt was made from “dirt to shirt” without ever crossing the state line. You can also learn more about services such as the Farm Advocate Link, a national organization that provides financial, legal, crisis and transition support for farmers every day or the Homegrown by Heroes label, serving to identify agriculture products grown by former veterans.

You might think the main stage is the place to be for the day, but there are plenty of great educational and exciting opportunities within our HOMEGROWN VILLAGE. Don’t miss out on a chance to experience everything we have to offer today at Farm Aid!

The HOMEGROWN Village is open from noon until 5 p.m. today.
