Farmers Jam

Bringing nature’s rhythm to life

farmers-jam-launch

Farmers Jam features live music from local farmers and friends, local jam, and an opportunity to engage with each element of the local fruit system through seasonal, hands-on activities.

Thanks to our partners, we engage people in propagating, planting, picking, and preserving local fruit, as well as the art of beekeeping and making compost. These opportunities highlight how vital the circle of life is to our future on this planet. Each event raises money for a partner organization and planting more fruit.

By experiencing the vibrations of the most important creatives in our city - the people who grow our food - we become in sync with our planet and our community, creating a healthier, regenerative place to live.

Let the jam live on! 🤘🤘🤘

OUR PARTNERS

PLANTING

Fruit Forward orchards

Fruit Forward Orchards creates community orchard projects to feed, teach, and inspire a better quality of life through direct access to nutritious fruits and berries grown close to home.

Picking

concrete Jungle

Concrete Jungle harvests almost all of its food from the thousands of fruit and nut trees growing in the Atlanta area — in yards, on the side of the road, next to buildings. Most of these trees are untended and ignored, with their bounty being wasted to wildlife while only miles away many poor and homeless struggle to include any fresh produce in their diet.
