Garlic Festival returns to Sharing Farm
The sixth annual Garlic Festival will draw thousands of people to the Sharing Farm this Sunday.
The festival serves as a crucial fundraiser for the largely volunteer-driven facility, which grows fruits and vegetables that are earmarked for either the Richmond Food Bank, or local community meals.
More than 4,000 people came out to celebrate all things garlic last year. Among the highlights are garlic ice cream, cooking demonstrations, farm tours, kids activities, and, of course, garlic sales.
Proceeds from the garlic festival allow the farm to continue to grow food for families in need and help maintain the farm’s vast array of programs.
The festival will be held at Terra Nova Rural Park on Sunday, Aug. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
