Home Grown, Home Made

One of the quickest ways to reach a Durhamite is with good food and drink shared with their community.  With that recipe, Home-Grown, Home-Made: A Celebration of Localism was conceived and is coming up on Thursday, October 27th.

The event is being produced by Durham Community Media, Durham's only local nonprofit community media center and public access TV station which provides its services through public financial support.

Hoped to become an annual event, attendees will enjoy tastes of local food, brew, wine and desserts and an evening of culinary and social celebration. Held at one of  Durham’s newest local breweries, Fullsteam Brewery, the event will bring  residents together to learn about the importance of localism.

The main goal of the event is to highlight local businesses and organizations that do good work and add to the charm and sustainability of Durham. “As we see it, local media and access to local information is just as important as having access to locally produced food and entertainment,” said Chad Johnston, Executive Director of Durham Community Media and The Peoples Channel. "We’re all interested in creating a healthy community.  This will be an evening where we can all come together and celebrate how unique and strong we are when we support one another.”

Home-Grown, Home-Made attendees will have a chance to sample local vendors while learning more about Durham Community Media. The Cookery, Kukia’s Cookies, Reliable Cheese, Vimalas's Curryblossom Cafe, Coon Rock Farm, and others will be at the event. Tickets are available online and at the door with all proceeds supporting the ongoing mission and operations of Durham Community Media.
