Imagine the magic of a street fair, the tastes and aromas of an organic farmers market, the pulse of live music and the fun of hands-on classes, cooking demos, pop-up gardens, mind expanding talks, and more!

Join us for South Florida's 1st Organic  Living, Eating and Farming Festival. 

 
Be part of the growing and timely movement to change the paradigm of eating and how we grow our food; from the nutrient dense soil we plant our seeds in, to the tasty morsels we so relish and enjoy. From our farms to our forks...

Living Well Begins With Eating Well &
Eating Well Begins With How Our Food Is Grown.
 

This year after we take to the streets for the 6th annual March Against Monsanto we decided to do something different. Much different. 

Help GMO Free Florida Create Miami's 1st farm2forkfest & Raise Funds For Farmers Impacted By Hurricane Irma 

We will be in The Wynwood Art District  this year for a FREE, education-based, family fun, sustainable food and farming festival spread throughout the district in various venues and participating businesses. This years focus is inspiring solutions in our communities with a focus on eco friendly, small, local sustainable acts that have a state-wide & even global impact.

We Need Your Help Though!

There are many expenses to produce a festival of this scale. With your support we can create the farm2forkfest and together, as a community, we will restore and regenerate our food and farming system, provide education about GMO’s and other important issues, help protect our precious pollinators, offer our community the opportunity to learn  great skills, tips, and tricks and, of course, enjoy some really delicious food!

We will kick off the festival and unite with activists around the world with the 6th Annual Global March Against Monsanto in the heart of Wynwood. Click here to learn more about the march

The Personal Is Political
When we think of politics we often think of Washington. In fact, politics is right here and right now. It is how we spend our money, the businesses we support, the lifestyle we embrace. We literally vote with our lives each and every day. Change does not come from the top down, it comes from the bottom up. The solutions are actually quite simple. And that's why we are creating the farm2forkfest. Come  meet your community and learn what you can do right now to insure a sustainable and regenerative world for generations to come. We are the ones we have been waiting for!

"I love being a part of the small group of volunteers that organizes the march and festivals each year. When I moved to Miami from Northern California I joined GMO Free Florida as a way to meet some like-minded folks in what seemed a sea of indifference to our planet. Wow, things have changed over the past few years. Farmers markets are popping up all over South Florida, the slow food movement is gaining speed, Miami's Health District recently opened Jackson Food Hall making healthy food avavilable to the 60,000 people in the district each day, the vegan diet is trending, and seems like there are fresh juice cafes on every corner. It is an exciting time! Please join us and add momentum to this miraculous shift in how we live, eat, grow our food and create conscious community in Miami. "

Always Love,
Jill Leslie

You see, the key to real and lasting changes in life is in how we live everyday. The Farm To Fork Fest is designed to educate and empower the individual so that we can live our very best life and cocreate a society that thrives. Together we can shift our food and farming paradigm, with that shift we will see a healthier and happier world.

Throughout Wynwood venues, restaurants and shoppes will host activities for all ages with a 'chill zone' , 'zen zone', 'kids zone' and more. The day culminates with a community picnic. For the picnic you can brown bag it or buy lunch from organic vegan vendors and food trucks.

This year we are raising money for our South Florida organic farmers who are still recovering from Hurricane Irma. There are many expenses this year for a free event of the magnitude. Please help us make it unforgettable with a donation to cover costs.
