I’m a volunteer with a local urban agriculture non-profit, the Neighborhood Farm Initiative, which is a project of the American the Beautiful Fund. The Neighborhood Farm Initiative, which focuses on adult and teen gardening education, will be hosting our second annual home brew contest fundraiser.
This event “Home Brew Harvest”, held on October 23 at America Ice Co in the U Street neighborhood, will feature a home brew 101 workshop, light seasonal snacks, and tasting of brews from a few local home brewers. The afternoon will conclude with a friendly competition where all attendees can vote for their favorites. This year, the Neighborhood Farm Initiative is teaming up with Food Day 2011, a national event spotlighting sustainable and healthy food, to celebrate the art of home brew – a wonderful way to enjoy sustainable libations.
