Farmers Jam

Farmers Jam engages people in the planting, picking and preserving of local fruit.

Farmers Jam is a benefit concert starring local farmers and locally made jam. We celebrate local fruit and those who grow it by raising money and recruiting volunteers to help farmers grow more fruit.

At this event, you can expect to see local farmers jamming out, local fruit for sale, a local bread raffle, and volunteer opportunities to help us plant, pick, and preserve local fruit.

Join us on november 14

Farmers Jam features the musical talents of local farmers and locally made jam. As we enjoy the musical creativity of local farmers jamming out, we’ll be selling locally sourced jam made by The Learning Kitchen to raise money for the planting of fruit on local farms!

We’ll also have a bread raffle with loaves prepared by local bakers, as well as other local goodies.

Stay tuned as we announce participating farmers, bakers, partners and volunteer opportunities.


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.
