The Huron River supplies up to 90% of the City of Ann Arbor's water supply.

From the Huron River!

At the Third Annual HomeGrown Festival on Saturday, September 11th from 6-11pm at the Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market featuring Southeast Michigan’s food, farms, and community.

The Huron River is a safe and reliable source of up to 90% of the City of Ann Arbor’s water supply. HRWC works hard to keep it that way and helps protect local working farms and natural areas in the process.  Come taste test your local water at our Festival booth and learn more about our work. Spread the word to your family, neighbors, colleagues, grocers, farmers, elected representatives, schools, email lists, blogs, tweets, and beyond.

Saturday, September 11, 2010, 6-11pm
Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market, 315 Detroit St., Ann Arbor, MI

There will be great eats and cool beverages, live music and fun for the whole family!  Entry to the Festival is FREE, and food and drink are available to purchase.

A bevy of chefs are working with nearby farms to create affordable tasting portions of the best of our region’s harvest. In addition to Huron River water, there will be dozens of other local libations (beer, wine, mead and hard cider) for grown-ups to enjoy. Project Grow will be back with their astounding heirloom tomato tasting – over 50 varieties to try!  Lots of kids’ activities (mural arts, music-making), a huge silent auction, a “Know Your Farmer” farmstand, dozens of artisan vendors, and a fantastic lineup of music for shaking your tailfeathers. Come hungry and stay all night!
