An irresistible fleet of bicycles is coming through DC on April 16!

It's really happening. I have been enamored with The Greenhorns for a few years now. The posse of like-minded young, sustainable farmers and food advocates kindly helped to promote my bikeable feast project from afar and now, at long last, I'll get to meet a few of them in person because they are coming to my hometown! Oooh, I can't wait to show 'em around....

For those of you readers with ADHD, here's the short version:
(Hey, pay attention! Hey, over here! Stop looking at that shiny thing!)

WHO:
The Greenhorns
and you!
WHAT:
DC Urban Farm Bike Tour, Greenhorns documentary screening, and reception
WHEN:
Saturday, April 16th, 2011
Bike tour/workshops from 1:00-6:00pm
Film screening and reception from 6:30-9:00pm
WHERE:
1pm meet @ Mamie D. Lee Community Garden, 100 Gallatin St., NE (Fort Totten)
6pm @ Letelier Theater, 3251 Prospect Street, NW, Upper Courtyard (Georgetown)
COST:
$10-30 sliding scale for film and reception (bike tour/workshops are free)

RSVP to my friend, Farmer Mo (only necessary for film attendance, as seating is capped at 90). If you have questions about the biking part of things, drop me a line. Otherwise, just show up. Those of you cyclists who have been following this blog KNOW not to show up without a helmet. I'd bring a bike lock, too. And a water bottle. And maybe some sunscreen. (And I'd pray for sun that day.)



Isn't this poster gorgeous? Kudos to Laura Cline, who does all of the Greenhorns' fantastic artwork, and who teamed up with local artist Karri Roberts on this project. Just need to add on a few more logos for additional groups who recently contacted me about donating tasty, local food.... Oh, this is going to be good.



Even Ollie's excited. Look, she's donned a new sticker for the event (freshly painted over with clear nail polish so it lasts more than 5 minutes...). Come join us on April 16!

  1. RAIN PLAN
    Okay, a number of folks have been asking about the foreboding weather report for this Saturday. It is looking grim. But the show must go on!

    SCREENING:
    Well, the (indoor) screening of the DC premiere of the Greenhorns documentary will go on, anyway, so if you've sent an RSVP get yourself to Letelier Theater by 6:00pm for the film and reception. It will be beautiful and delicious. Be there.

    URBAN FARM BIKE TOUR:
    Due to the outdoor nature of the bike tour, if it is raining hard or thunderstorming at 1pm, the ride and workshops will be rescheduled (date TBA). If it rains in the morning and is clear (or only sprinkling) by 1pm, we're planning on doing the full event. C'mon, it'll be fun.
