Support Community Gardens and Urban Farms at the Philadelphia Homegrown Music Festival This Weekend
If you are a lover of local food and live music (I mean, really, who isn’t?), this festival is tailor-made for you: This weekend, the Philadelphia Homegrown Music Festival will be taking over 10 of the city’s urban farms and community gardens for two nights of great music in support of locally grown food. Seriously—can you think of a better spot for an outdoor concert than a flower-filled urban farm? So freakin’ dreamy, right?
Here’s the deal: This Friday and Saturday, a $10 donation will get you a full night’s worth of live music from local musicians at a slew of community gardens and urban farms across Philly. The festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. at Bartram’s Garden on Friday, with a lineup of five local bands playing throughout the evening. But Saturday is when the real fun begins: From 4 to 9:30 p.m. you can catch local musicians playing at one of any nine spots across Philly, from Manton Street Community Garden in South Philly to The Philadelphia Urban Creators in North Philly to the Urban Tree Connection in West Philly, and more.
As the festival’s website states, “Our goal is to support locally grown food, food justice, food independence and to provide opportunities for local musicians to showcase their talent.” So, if you appreciate Philly’s urban farms and community gardens as much as we do, now’s the perfect chance to show them some love.
