iGrow Food & Art Festival
Tallahassee, Florida

The iGrow Youth Empowerment Farm is an urban agricultural initiative of the Tallahassee Food Network. I worked with a team to organzine the first annual iGrow Food & Art Festival.

Located in the Historic Frenchtown Neighborhood, our aim was to honor and encourage the rich cultural traditions of the area, and to celebrate them with the larger Tallahassee Community.

The festival included African dance ensembles, graffiti mural painting, compost and gardening workshops, and a mobile cart where you could create art in exchange for organic produce.

Live music was performed by local jazz groups and R&B singers, and food vendors provided cooking demonstrations with seasonal vegetables while offering reduced cost meals to neighborhood residents.
