Urban Agrarian Movement Plans Two Events for Early December


1 comment

Having already established their first urban garden surrounding the parking lot behind the Frothy Monkey in 12South, the Urban Agrarian Movement is out to raise awareness (and a little money) to help with their efforts to encourage more neighborhood gardens around town. To that end, they have two events coming up Dec. 6 and 8 in the Belmont/Hillsboro/12South area and would love to have Bitesters attend one or both.

First off will be a screening of GROW! the Movie, a documentary about a group of sustainable farmers in Georgia that recently screened in town as part of a fundraiser for Community Food Advocates. This showing will be in the lot behind Imogene and Willie on 12th Avenue South starting up around 6:30 p.m. Dec. 6. Admission is free, but donations to to UA will be appreciatively accepted.

They plan to have door prizes, Yazoo beer and at least one food truck to keep you happy, and fire pits to keep you warm, but bring a blanket to snuggle under. Jeremy Barlow of tayst and Sloco and Noel Glasgow of UA will both be giving short remarks about the importance of sustainable farming within a food community, and I guarantee those two walk the walk in their daily lives.

An even bigger event will be held 7 p.m. Dec. 8 at Frothy Monkey to raise funds for their community garden and speak about the partnership between the UA Movement and the restaurant. Tickets are limited, so please don't wait to RSVP to Noel Glasgow at noel@urban-agrarian-movement.com. All proceeds from this event will go toward the Frothy/UA Garden, and each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of The Urban Agrarian by Michael Gregory, the founder of the UA Movement.

Vinea will provide wines for the five-course tasting menu, which will also showcase items off of Frothy Monkey's new dinner menu. There will also be beer available as well as a raffle and giveaways. The event is limited to 60 people, and it sounds like fabulous fun for $50 toward a great cause.
