On January 15th, Fresh Future Farm completed construction on its first crop tunnel (below) on the North Charleston urban farm. To christen the addition, the farm will host a ‘Black History in the Macon’ fundraiser on Sunday, February 11th from 2 pm to 5 pm. Guests will participate in a farm tour and learn about Chicora-Cherokee’s history of agriculture.
During the celebration, Chef BJ Dennis will cook up Gullah goodness using farm raised hens and greens and herbs as a featured part of the meal. Jazz singer Ann Caldwell will round out the afternoon with a live performance.
Tickets are $80 per person and can be purchased on Eventbrite here, in person during store hours (Tuesday – Saturday 10 am – 6 pm) and at the door. Participants will also receive a limited-edition tee along with complimentary beer and wine.
About Fresh Future Farm
Fresh Future Farm uses a multi-pronged approach to address health, wealth and quality of life issues in the heart of the Chicora-Cherokee community of North Charleston. This black female-led urban ag operation feels more like an old-fashion country store than a nonprofit. Each customer receives a warm welcome and soon becomes a friend. Specialty food items catering to food allergies, vegan and vegetarian diets are sold alongside basic groceries and dry goods. Their grocery store accepts SNAP (EBT) in addition to cash and debit cards. Few places can boast that store brand products are produce grown right outside the door. The farm grows chemical-free fruits and vegetables sold at peak freshness. Any food waste is fed to worms, chickens or is composted. The hens lay the best tasting eggs in Charleston County. Dual purpose hens and farm fresh eggs are coming back to the farm by the summer 2018.
