Community Farm Open House & Family Day
June 18 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Bring the whole family for a fun day at the farm! Enjoy live music, food trucks, children’s crafts and free ice cream!
Come visit The Piedmont Environmental Council’s Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows in Gilberts Corner, between Routes 15 and 50. Tour the farm and learn more about its role providing healthy local produce to food-insecure families in Loudoun County. This family-friendly event will feature children’s activities including face painting, a scavenger hunt and a pollinator habitat creation station, Happy Family Ranch food truck, and ice cream!
Free pints of ice cream are available for the first 100 people that bring a nonperishable food item for donation to Loudoun Hunger Relief – help us stuff their transportation van with food! More info on the items Loudoun Hunger Relief is looking to have donated.
This event is free to attend. Please register in advance so we know how many to expect. Group farm tours available at 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Both food truck vendors will have vegetarian options available. No pets please.
Note: Please plan to wear sensible clothing and footwear. Although we do our best to maintain the property, there is always a risk that you could be exposed to ticks or poison ivy while on the farm. Bug spray and sunscreen are also encouraged!
Loudoun County is one of the wealthiest and most rapidly developing jurisdictions in our country. However, more than 14,000 Loudoun community members—half of them children—are food insecure.
The Piedmont Environmental Council’s Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows launched in early 2019. In its first season, the farm produced almost 5,000 pounds of fresh fruits and veggies including potatoes, tomatoes, squash, and melons. Since our first season, production on the farm has increased by more than 600 percent. Throughout our 2021 season, we welcomed 750 volunteers who donated over 1600 hours of their time to the farm, while following CDC and health department guidelines. Our volunteers harvested 35,000 pounds of fresh produce for donation to Loudoun Hunger Relief.
In honor of PEC’s 50th anniversary, the Community Farm will grow and donate 50,000 pounds of regeneratively grown produce in 2022!
