On Saturday, April 25, 2020 from Noon – 4:00pm we will be celebrating the Fifth Annual Newburgh Urban Farming Fair in the City of Newburgh. The Fair is a collaboration of a wide array of community organizations and volunteers.
The Fair celebrates urban farming/gardening with fresh food, local vendors, crafts and family fun. We are also welcoming Arm-of-the-Sea Puppet Theater to be part of the celebration this year. They will be performing their newest production, One Blue Sky. Always a crowd pleaser, we expect Arm-of-the-Sea to draw a large number of people as they have when they performed at the Urban Farming Fair in the past. The Fair and performance are open to the community and free of charge.
We are also very excited to be introducing the second Newburgh Urban Gardens Calendar. The calendar includes 19 months of photos beginning in June 2020. Once again most of the photos are taken by Newburgh resident and master photographer Nancy Layne. Included are gardening tips to help residents tend the gardens in their neighborhoods and backyards.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendars will help support the community gardens in Newburgh.
