ATLANTA (CBS46) -

An Atlanta brewery will host an Earth Day concert Tuesday night to raise money for a charity that aims to eradicate world hunger through innovative farming techniques.

Kula Project aims to help coffee farmers in the African country of Rwanda learn how to double their income.

"Every bag of coffee you buy will buy one coffee tree for a farmer in Rwanda," said Sarah Buchanan, co-founder of Kula Project.

The concert, set for 7-10 p.m. Tuesday at Monday Night Brewing in northwest Atlanta, features Atlanta-based Sailing to Denver, a rhythmic strings band known for harmonizing timeless choruses.

The event also features a corn hole tournament, artisan shopping, a farmer-themed photo booth, a hot dog stand and beer tasting.

Tickets are $20 in advance at KulaProject.org or $25 at the door. Entry includes six tasting tickets. Event proceeds benefit Kula Project's Rwandan efforts.
