On Saturday, August 10th, IllVibeTheTribe, a local "cultural incubation hub," will take their talents to North Charleston to help save Fresh Future Farm. The group will be curating an art and food market were proceeds benefit the farm’s initiative.This "FarmRaiser" will take place from 10 am to 2 pm on the farm (2008 Success Street).
Fresh Future Farm recently launched a kickstarter to help buy the land they leased from the City of North Charleston in 2014. Owning the property is essential to ensuring the farm and grocery store survive long-term and are not displaced for other uses.
Fresh Future Farm not only is the main fresh food source within miles of the Chicora/Cherokee neighborhood, but they also provide camps to the children, teaches agriculture to the community, provide jobs to people of their community, and has been a hub for those in need.
“Fresh Future Farm is the solution people always speak about - a community garden, that helps people have a better option of living, teaches us better ways to cook, and creates a sense of community," IllVibeTheTribe said in press release. "Losing this farm would be a devastating loss in this community. The 'FarmRaiser' brings together local artists, artisans, and chefs to set up shop inside of the Farm for a fun mix of food and festivities to help this farm stay where it needs to be. So bring your friends, family, kids, and COIN because we've got a farm to save!"
