This family-friendly event will include free children’s activities, as well as artisan food and craft vendors who are donating a portion of their proceeds to HHS. Steward instructors, the VMFA, Hummingbird Gardens and more will lead activities for children. Food and craft vendors are Sub Rosa Bakery, River City Wood Fire Pizza, Love This and Maven Made.
The Making, Tasting & Craft Fair is part of the 2017-18 Bryan Innovation Lab Visiting Innovators Program, featuring Manyang Reath Kher and Ger Duany, former Sudanese refugees and founders of the Humanity Helping Sudan Project (HHS) and 734 Coffee. HHS is a global organization providing Sudanese refugees with the tools and knowledge to achieve self-sufficiency. It is partly funded through 734 Coffee sales. It also has ties to Richmond; Kher is a University of Richmond alumnus and worked on HHS while living here.
Following the Making, Tasting & Craft Fair, Kher and Duany will lead a discussion at 5:30pm: Grounds for Good: Changing Lives in Africa through the Coffee We Drink. They will share their story of how they’re changing lives in their homeland, and inspire the community by showing the difference every individual person can make. Participants will learn about how 734 Coffee is helping in Africa, and how our own local food innovators are serving our own community.
