Food Day 2015 at ECO City Farms was not to be missed! Hundreds of people came out to the site of the Port Towns Farmers Market, a block away from the Bladensburg Farm, for a fun festival to celebrate local food. The day featured plenty of fun activities: pumpkin painting, a parachute game, sack race, apple tasting, face painting, and of course our famous smoothie bikes. Event goers also had the opportunity to make a self watering planters.
Joe’s Movement Emporium galvanized the crowd with an impromptu salsa lesson and hula hoop fiasco. Performances included Los Travadores Mariachi band and Kristen Arant leading a djembe drum circle. Antonio Hernadez aka DJ Vicunyah, a long time ECO supporter, was on the turntables to keep up the energy.
A special thanks goes out to all our volunteers, vendors and partners, including Zenful Bites, Maribel A. Rodriguez of Marble Arch Gardens, Art Works Now and the Riverdale Farmers Market.
This event was made possible by the collaboration of ECO City Farms, Port Towns Community Health Partnership and the Prince George’s County Food Equity Council.
