Organicfest grows in Pack Square Park on Saturday

Ready to get your organic on? Tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 11, head down to Pack Square Park for the 10th annual Organicfest, a special environmental project of the Imagine Center, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting all things organic. Expect to see a wide array of booths scattered throughout the newly completed park, including organic food and beverage vendors and other organic goods.

This being Asheville, there’s plenty of live and local music to keep your ears occupied. A number of environmental organizations will also be on hand to share information about organic living, gardening, farming and earth-friendly living. Plenty of activities are planned for the kids, too. Look for the Organicfest Kids Garden Parade at 1 p.m.

Here are some the sponsors, goods, booths and events you can expect to see:

  1. You can also come see many organic practices in action in real gardens in the urban environment tomorrow during the West Asheville Garden Stroll from 11am to 4pm. Stroll Guides to get you started can be picked up at the West Asheville Library starting at 11am.
