AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN ANNOUNCEMENTS
Sending this separately from the “Open Market” email because there’s some important info here. Specifically:
NEW MARKET ADMINSTRATOR THIS WEEK:
Big hugs to Leslie Carson of Luna Bug Soaps. She will fill-in as Market Administrator from Oct 21-Nov 1 while I’m out of town. If you have any questions or concerns about your order, please contact Leslie at 706-627-5627. Or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FARM TOUR TOMORROW AT EAST GEORGIA PRODUCE:
Join us this Saturday, Oct 20, for a farm tour at East Georgia Produce in Bartow, GA. This “eco-ganic” farm features a wide variety of organically-grown veggies; I believe a few pigs are also on the scene. Arrive at 2pm; the tour starts at 2:30pm and will finish around 4pm. It is a free, family-friendly event. Fresh vegetables will be available for sale, and a big pot of veggie chili will be shared by all. RSVP to email@example.com for the address and directions.
A-GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK:
Congratulations to Taz, a middle school student from Augusta. Taz is one of eight volunteers from Good Neighbor Ministries mentor program of Harrisburg who helped pull out hundreds of tomato stakes at Brandywine Farm in Appling this week. A picture of him working with farmer Mike is now posted at augustalocallygrown.org. Taz will receive a limited-edition A-GUSTAVORE tshirt for his winning photo & story.
AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN SPEAKS WITH THE RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOL NUTRITION PROGRAM:
Augusta Locally Grown was invited to address the annual meeting of the Richmond County School Nutrition Program this week. The topics focused on whole, seasonal foods. We think this is good news for our schools’ futures!
COMPUTER PROGRAM GLITCHES AT NOON TODAY:
You may have run into some glitches today at the opening of Augusta Locally Grown. Sorry if so. Our web guru in Athens has been working out the kinks, and for this we are grateful.
ENJOY THE MARKET THIS WEEK!
