*WELCOME BEAVER DAM FARM! *
Grass-pastured eggs are now available from our newest farmers, Eugene & Lucille Cheeks, at Beaver Dam Farm. Located in Keysville, GA, the Cheeks are a “retired” couple who have created an extensive, all-natural homestead on the beaver-dammed land they’ve had for 50 years. Welcome!

POULTRY SWAP & SALETOMORROW!
Check out the Poultry Swap & Sale tomorrow, November 10, from 10am-2pm. The event will be held in the parking lot at Tractor Supply on Bobby Jones. This is a great opportunity to invest in some backyard poultry. For more information, call David Young at 706-799-1841.

SOUPER KIDS CAFE
Big thanks to the Augusta Area Dieticians Association for their donation to purchase the locally grown vegetables we will use at this weekend’s “Souper Kids Cafe.” Big thanks also to Chef Charleen for creating original, veggie-based recipes for this kids cooking event.

SOUTHERN SCRATCH HOLIDAY ORDERS DUE!
If you’ve ever had a nibble of the baked goodies created by Southern Scratch with local ingredients, you know their work is pure magic. NOTE: this is the last week to place your holiday orders for 2012!

A_GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: RHONDA
For Halloween, Rhonda sent us a photo of herself cooking a “Frankensquash.” She writes: “Cross pollination in a friend’s garden resulted in squash plants that produce pale green fruit with a yellow squash shape and acorn squash ribs. The Frankensquash tastes like a zucchini, so I hope my garden produces more!” Rhonda will receive a limited edition A-GUSTAVORE tshirt for her winning photo.

THANK YOU LESLIE:
Thank you Leslie of Luna Bug Soups for giving me the gift of a stress-free, two-weeks-away-from-the-market. You are a gem.

SEE YOU ALL AT THE MARKET ON TUESDAY!

This event will engage 30-40 children in the cooking of six big pots of vegetable-based soups to feed 100 people community-style. Volunteers include Chef Charleen Tinley of Culinary Connections, several professionals from the Augusta Dieticians Association, as well as medical students from GHSU and volunteers of the Harrisburg Veggie Truck Initiative.

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!
