January – April 2018

Happy 2018!  We are beginning our new workshop series in January.  Workshops for gardening and food/farm businesses as well!  Market Moves continues until spring – a great way to keep you New Year’s resolutions.  The Farmers Market is every Wednesday from 3 – 6:30 pm – a great time to eat fresh local winter produce, enjoy Stone Circle bread, and more!

January -April 2017

Cheers to 2017! We’re beginning the new year with new gardening workshops hosted in the Hunter Park GardenHouse with speakers ranging on topics from bee-keeping to seeding. The Farmers Market is still running from 3-6:30pm inside the Allen Market Place, so keep coming to visit and grab your teas and breads!
