Our first harvest was completed by kaiako Michell and Tyler out of our raised garden beds today. And what a bountiful harvest it was.
Kaiako Fran and the children have worked hard to make sure the first of our crops were bountiful and successful.
After gathering several of the lettuce heads that were ready for eating, Tyler and Michell bagged up this delicious crop for the farmers market. I wonder what Fran’s gardening secret is because the vegetable gardens are thriving!
Our Farmers market works as a trade and exchange or small cash donation. If you see something that looks useful to you and your family then by all means help yourselves. Maybe you have some other treasures at home that you can put in the market instead or a few coins to go in the honesty tin attached to the stand.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see our community sharing their own garden produce, plants or flowers, children’s books or small toys, pickles, jams or preserves as they exchange goods with one another through the farmers market.
“Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let’s stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.” – Anne Raver
