THE ONLINE FARMERS MARKET IS OPEN AT AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN


Happy 2019!

As we welcome the New Year, we also welcome two new market managers to the ALG OnLine Farmers Market. Please give a warm hello to Katie Wilson at the AJCC location and Cassidy Usry at the Clubhou.se location. They both start training this Tuesday!!

In doing so, we also express deep, heartfelt appreciation to our outgoing market managers: Amy Sutter and Susannah Johnson. Both of these remarkable woman are farmers who — bottom line — want and need to spend more time working their farms!!

But don’t worry! Augusta Locally Grown will continue to work with Amy and Susannah in totally farm-fun ways! Susannah will host a “Ladies Homestead Gathering” with us on Sat Feb 2 at the Clubhou.se, and we encourage you to save the date!! Of course, Amy’s already got loads of delicious workshops ideas planned for “White Hills Farm.”

Thank you for continuing to support local farmers in myriad ways! And if you’re looking for more, check out our 2019 Events Calendar at augustalocallygrown.org.

Cheers!
Kim
