For 2024, our 31st anniversary, our Royalty has chosen to support Tri Cycle Farms in Fayetteville. Tri Cycle Farms is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to grow community through soil.
From their website, here is the farm’s story:
Tri Cycle Farms is a community urban farm-park, working to address food insecurity by growing food and teaching others to grow food. We have a beautiful, productive garden on 2 acres of land in the heart of Fayetteville. Our friends and neighbors come to work in the garden, or they might stop by to soak in the rejuvenating natural beauty. We strive to create community by reconnecting with the land, with our food, and with each other.
Though growing food is what got us started, we have expanded our programming to include much, much more! We have begun to create our own circular economy through the enactment of various programs, which include garden tending, chicken tending, hydroponics and food recovery, as well as educational classes and workshops.
When you support the Fayetteville Mardi Gras’ 2024 celebration, either through sponsorships, entries, or donations, you also support the Farm’s mission to “to grow community through soil, as we steward food awareness, education, and empowerment. We envision a world with food security, sovereignty, and sustainability for all.” To learn more about the Tri Cycle Farms, visit https://www.tricyclefarms.org/, or follow them on Facebook, or on Instagram!
