Colony1's Turnip the Beet! Market Festival & International Day of PeaceSaturday, September 19, 10am-8pm - Colony1, 550 NW 22nd St, Miami Wynwood Arts District

The Wynwood community enjoyed a day of local, farm fresh harvests, educational workshops, tastings, meditation, healing, yoga, and live music during Colony1’s 4th market festival and educational workshop series, Turnip the Beet! This month Colony1 celebrated International Day of Peace / World Peace Weekend with peace-themed workshops all day long and a special BeThePeace global synchronized meditation led by Emily Peters and Karina Saravia.

The local handmade market included vendors such as Everglades Treats, Guru Shots, Half BakedVegan, Lady Green Recycling, Lotus In Hand, One BreathBodywork, and Veritas Soap Co. From community gardening to kids yoga, Turnip the Beet provided a family friendly day celebrating people, ecology, connectivity and sustainability. The celebration continued with an after-party at Gramps during the 8th Annual Everglades Awareness Benefit Concert.

Colony1 is an art and environmental research facility in Miami providing a centralized hub for collaboration between art and science through a residency program, on-going workshops, lectures, on-site demonstrations, and community outreach programs to bring sustainability to South Florida.
