What's a Foodway?
The term "foodway" is a cultural concept that refers to the intersection of food in culture, traditions and history. The goal of developing a Foodway at Concrete Plant Park is to create a productive landscape make up of edible and useful plants that the local community can use, interact with and learn from. Beyond just growing food, the Foodway will serve as a catalyst for activating Concrete Plant Park with interesting, community-led programming and engagement. The plants, which will reflect the cultures of the surrounding communities, will provide opportunities for diverse cultural expression and serve as a launching pad for creative arts, health, community and recreational programming at Concrete Plant Park throughout the summer and fall of 2017.

Food will be provided and kids are welcomed!
