Greetings All –
Well, this heat sure is nice for all the summer crops that are yet to blush and ripen. Tomatoes, sweet and spicy peppers, melons, eggplant and raspberries all are loving this little heat wave; although our hardy farmers are exhausted and have “September Brain” they, too, are likely pleased with another flush of food.
When: every Wednesday from 1-5pm through the end of October (we then move indoor to the Washington St. Education Center on Saturdays for November and December!)
Where: Corner of M52 and Old US 12. There is plenty of parking near the businesses on the south side. Please keep the north spaces and those closest to the bank open for bank patrons.
Who: Lovely humans working to steward healthy community!
