Black-eyed Peas and Collard Greens!

This year's Juneteenth celebration on the Farm showcases two traditional foods in African-American farming and culinary heritage: black-eyed peas and collard greens!

Program

10:30 AM: Clemmons Family Farm's collaborating artist, Pamela Donohoo, will start off our community-building program with an aerial performance, When Black-Eyed Peas Met Collard Greens, and engage audience members in fun movement, Q&A and discussion.

Where do I park?

Parking is located on the lawns right at the entrance of 2213 Greenbush Road- you will see parking signs. The Authentica Art Gallery is located directly across the street from the parking, on the west side of the road at 2190 Greenbush Road (Adirondack Mountain side). You will see "Event Parking" signs indicating the areas where you can park. You will then cross the road and walk over to the Authentica Art Gallery- meet up is on the lawns behind Authentica.

Accessibility

Please let us know if you have difficulty walking- we are reserving parking for you right in front of the Authentica Art gallery at 2190 Greenbush Road. Email clemmonsfamilyfarm@gmail.com or call (765) 560-5445 and leave a message.

Is it ok to bring children?

Yes, absolutely! Parents and younger children (10 years and below) should really enjoy this program. If your wee ones get restless, there's plenty of room outside on the lawns for them to run around, and a really great hill for rolling, but they will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Is this event really free admission?

Yes! We suggest a minimum donation of $5.00 per person. If you can donate more, please do. If your finances are tight and you can't afford a donation, please come and spend some time away from the stress of that situation.
