Shortly after being founded in 2012, AFLA organized a six day music and art
beneﬁt series along the Wasatch Front which solidiﬁed our relationships with local
food organizations and entertainment professionals.
To promote our efforts we created a video using AFLA produced music and interviews featuring well known artists like Graham Russell of Air Supply and Tim Kasher of Cursive. This video earned us a $2500 grant which allowed us to attend most major farmer’s markets and sustainability events that year. At the Urban Arts Festival , we were invited by the Utah Arts Alliance to use a portion of their property and create a unique “community art garden”.
We loved the idea, and in 2013 our primary focus became fund-raising and working with volunteers to build what has now successfully become the Railyard Community Art Garden.
