As we strive for our summer goal of 5000lbs, we encourage anyone with surplus food from their gardens to drop it off at our stall at the Downtown Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4:30pm, and Saturdays from 11am-4:30pm. Rosie and the kids have also been growing a small garden on the Wally Elmer lawn, from which they will soon harvest tomatoes and cucumbers for their very own salsa.
