In support of “Together in the Kitchen – A Family Lifestyle,” Blue Ridge Sprouts will embrace the power of food to enhance life. VA Kids Trail and its sister community, Taste of Blue Ridge, are joining forces to bring together farmers, chefs, food artisans, and restaurants, as well as businesses aligned with the Trail’s interest areas of wellness, action, heritage, and creativity.
