Rio Grande Community Farm presents the FarmStrong Spring Festival, plant sale, races, fun run, beer, live music, food trucks, family activities, workshops. Saturday, April 9th, 9am - 4pm

Join us for our first annual FarmStrong Spring Festival, on Saturday, April 9th.

Get your garden started right with heirloom seeds and seedlings at our plant sale (no admission required to shop for plants). And to help green your thumb, we’re hosting workshops to teach helpful gardening tips.

Once you’re done purchasing the perfect plants for your own garden, kick back and sip some beer or wine in our beer garden, and enjoy great live music in the beautiful open space. We’ll have games for the kiddos (young and old alike), great local vendors, and fabulous food trucks.

In addition to the festival, we will be holding a race on the open space on Sunday, April 10th (the next day). Race admission includes entry to the Farmstrong Spring Festival, so sign up to keep yourself, your community, and RGCF healthy.

Plant Starts

We raised these babies in our greenhouse at Rio Grande Community Farm because we want to share local food that is truly local, and to spread the healthiest, tastiest food across the region.

Grow some of our finest crops in your garden, and bring a bit of the community farm to your home.

We will have a selection of other varieties available at the plant sale during the Farmstrong Spring Festival, so be sure to browse at the festival to snag some rarer varieties, too.
