Before taking to the show floor, a small group of exhibitors and attendees at Natural Products Expo East braved the rain in Baltimore on Wednesday, Sept. 13, to lend a hand on the city's largest urban farm that aims to improve neighborhood access to fresh, healthy food.
At Real Food Farm, education coordinator Aliza Sollins led the group through a tour of the 6 acre property and explained how its production staff and AmeriCorps service members use organic and sustainable farming practices to grow fresh produce for the community. In the following slides, see how Real Food Farm is working to make healthy food accessible and affordable for all, and how Expo East volunteers did their small part.
The service project at Expo East was sponsored by Esca Bona platform sponsors 301 Inc. and Good Catch Foods. Learn more about Esca Bona, which will take place Oct. 16-18 in Austin, here. Participation is limited to 300.
