Tickets for Augusta Boucherie are on sale now! Visit www.augustaboucherie.com to get your ticket.
The Butchery – or “Boucherie” in French – is an age-old tradition. Friends, neighbors and family members gather to help butcher livestock and preserve meat in the fall, assuring that all parts of the animals are used for sustenance.

FAREWELL TO OUR COLLEGE-BOUND MARKET MANAGERS, TIM & SETH!
This is Tim’s last week at our Downtown Market. Tim is headed to UGA to finish his undergraduate studies in Sports Management. Seth will finish up at our Riverwood Market next week. Seth is hunkering down in his studies at ASU, with a rigorous math class on Tuesday nights. We are ever so grateful for the tremendous responsibility and service these young men have provided Augusta Locally Grown and will miss them very, very much.
AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN ON FACEBOOK:
The Augusta Locally Grown Facebook page has enjoyed a joyous rebirth! (Thanks to Leslie of Luna Bug for nudging us into the 21st century.) We deeply appreciate all your “likes,” your photos, and especially your enthusiastic kudos for our farmers’ food.
HAPPY WORLD SOIL DAY!
Yep! It’s real! A Brazilian friend and soil scientist clued me in!! And what a worthy celebration it was …on Dec 5.
A-GUSTAVORE TSHIRT WINNER THIS WEEK: LORETTA
When Loretta Adderson friended me on Facebook this week, her profile included one of my favorite locally grown photos ever! I’d seen it before, but it makes me smile every time. I mean, WHAT could be cooler than an organic-farmer-nutrition-activist-grandma and her John Deere? Kenny Chesney may SING about his sexy tractor, but in my book Loretta is the real deal.
SEE YOU ALL AT THE MARKET ON TUESDAY!
