As you know, I am a pretty big foodie, but what you may not know is that I’m passionate about increasing awareness for sustainability and supporting local farming. I was raised in an agriculture state, Delaware. My grandparents had farms and I prefer to cook using fresh produce from local farms or local markets. A group of awesome individuals created ThreadCount, a “unique, bi-monthly vendors market that links you to the latest happenings with local and national artists, designers, fashion, music and eats.”*
The next ThreadCount takes place on Saturday, July 20th in the East Lake Community Gardens & East Lake Urban Farm. These dope folks created this special event to raise awareness around sustainability, craftsmanship, design, and agriculture to our local community to encourage them to get involved and be more aware and active. I absolutely love this concept, idea and purpose!
In addition to the artist market, there will be a Wine & Cheese Tasting and Private Farm Tour! Woo-Hoo! Wine + cheese + art + wine = dopeness!
