Ryan Smith and Kellie Thorn of Empire State South present a late afternoon filled with wild libations and a family style meal inspired from "spring tonics". Spring tonics are the first wild plants to grow each spring and are nutritious edibles traditionally gathered to rejuvenate the body after a winter diet of heavy and stored foods.
Upon arrival at Crack in the Sidewalk Farmlet, guests will enjoy traditional "tonic" cocktails with a wild twist crafted by mixiologist Kellie Thorn. After a stroll through the farm, Ryan Smith will present a family style dinner utilizing wild, foraged, and heirloom produce grown with love on the farm. Guests may enjoy the meal at a private table, community table, or picnic style on the farm.
Proceeds will provide scholarships and start-up funds for young farmers at a time of year when farm income can be both most critically needed and in shortest supply.
The Spring Tonic will offer a culinary experience sure to delight and invigorate. Come see what's in season.
About Crack in the Sidewalk:
Chris Clinton and Isia Cooper started Crack in the Sidewalk Farmlet five years ago hidden away in the forgotten backyard of the city, otherwise known as South Atlanta. Beginning as a small personal garden they've grown to encompass numerous neighboring properties transforming a blighted neighborhood into a community based around sustainable farming practices, homesteading skills, and mutual empowerment. Their specialty is foraged wild edibles, heirloom varieties of vegetables and unique crops.
