Back to Food, Back to School
August is the month of varietal education. From Frog Hollow peaches to Happy Boy dry farmed tomatoes and heirloom potatoes, the Farmer's Market is ripe with opportunity to explore and discover the nuances of each type of vegetable and fruit as they begin to express their unique, flavorful personality. August is also the month of education in its grounding form - the classroom and the playground of school. While farmer's cultivate the land and bring us the fruits of their labor; students cultivate their minds and share the fruits of their knowledge. Unfortunately, neither food nor education are equally accessible. We are supporting our seedlings as they grow, ripen and mature by collecting backpacks and then filling them with school supplies. But we need your help! Check out the side bar below for more information.
