THE ON-LINE MARKET IS OPEN AT AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN


*Loads of opportunities to visit local farms this spring! *

SUNDAY, MAY 4 – URBAN FARM & GARDEN TOUR & PROGRESSIVE MEAL
We’re touring four urban farms & veggie gardens this weekend in partnership with the Sierra Club of Augusta. On tour: Urban Ag Solutions in Appling, Legacy Gardens in Evans, the Harrisburg Community Gardens & Honey Cooperative in Augusta, and Ice Box Farm in North Augusta. Sorry! This is a sold-out event. However, if you’d like to plan your group’s own urban farm tour, give us a holler at kim@augustalocallygrown.org.

FRIDAY, MAY 9 – FARM FRIDAY
It’s “Farm Friday” at White Hills Lavender Farm in Dearing, GA. Enjoy their open house and farm tours every Friday, starting May 9. Contact Lisa at whitehillsfarm@gmail.com for times and directions.

SUNDAY, MAY 18 – RAISED BED ORGANIC GARDENING WORKSHOP
Back by popular demand, another raised bed and container gardening class will be held at Legacy Gardens in Evans on Sunday afternoon, May 18. This class is intentionally small to focus on your needs as a backyard grower. Tickets are $20 and can be ordered through our on-line website, or purchase directly from David Gianino at dgianino@uga.edu.

SATURDAY, MAY 17 & SATURDAY, JUNE 7 – DUCK DAYS AT ICE BOX FARM
Learn to humanely process and prepare delicious, fresh, local duck at Ice Box Farm in North Augusta. This engaging, informative workshop includes a complete demonstration of duck processing, start to finish. Chef Dave McCluskey will also demonstrate how to prepare his scrumptious Duck Bog … and you’ll get to take some home. Cost is $45; couples attend for only $75. Space is limited. Enroll through www.iceboxfarm.com.

SUNDAY, JUNE 1 – PICKIN’ PARTY CROB MOB

4:30pm – Farm foraging tour with Karen Smith of Southern Native Plantings
