FigFest! supports the ongoing mission of The Italian Garden Project including Italian American vegetable garden documentation, educational programs and website, and heirloom seed preservation garden.

The allure of fig growing goes beyond the sweet reward of the sun-ripened fruit. For many, figs evoke a powerful connection to the past, and the challenges of growing them are far outweighed by the joy they bring.
