Today was a great day for good home grown foods and getting your hands dirty. And if you missed it, there will be another opportunity in just two weeks!
Several volunteers showed up at the Townsend Center today to prepare the community garden for planting. Some were from Earlham and all were there to support the new garden initiative “Sprout Of Control.” This wonderful group is actually the combination of two groups in the area who have the same purpose: building community gardens all over the area.
The Winter Farmer’s Market, this year at the Townsend Center, is a great opportunity to find homemade baked goods, textiles, jewelry, and fresh greens and lettuce.
Today we were able to pick up a bib for a new baby in the family, a bag of salad greens, onions, fresh baked bread and an apron. After we helped a bit with the community garden we went back in for luscious snack of cake pops, mmmmm…….
After the close of the market, there was a meeting of the planning committee for Sprout Of Control- which is open to anyone interested in sharing their gardening expertise or just lending a hand.
The next meeting for Sprout of Control will be March 23rd, again at the close of the Market at 2:30 p.m. Come get involved and join in the “Hoe Down,” in Wayne County.
