In 2019, The Piedmont Environmental Council launched its Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows, between Rt. 15 and Rt. 50 in Aldie.
With the help of community volunteers, the organization partners with food pantries like Loudoun Hunger Relief and other community organizations in Loudoun to increase the availability of fresh produce for those in need.
To celebrate the opening of the farm this year, the PEC is hosting a Family Day at the Community Farm on Sunday, Oct. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will feature live music, children’s activities, the Happy Family Ranch and Parallel food trucks, MooThru ice cream, and craft beer from Powers Farm & Brewery and Dynasty Brewing Company.
Attendees will also learn more about the farm and ways they can get more involved.
The cost to attend is $10 per vehicle. Pay-at-the-door is available, but registration is requested in advance for planning purposes. Go to pecva.org/events to purchase tickets and get directions.
