MOBILE MARKET BEGINS

We launched our Mobile Markets on June 15th at The Brockton Neighborhood Health Center (63 Main St) and the Family Center/Trinity Baptist Church parking lot (1637 Main St)!

Melissa Mardo (Market Intern), Angela Beyer (Market Manager), Tim Watts and other volunteers enjoyed a successful first market day – selling lots of greens, kohlrabi, beets, herbs, chard and a few guest veggies from Langwater Farm (spring onions and turnips).

We will continue to donate veggies to our 4 main community partners and one additional crate of seasonal goodness each week to the Brockton Neighborhood Health Center for their cooking classes at their Pleasant St. location.

AT THE FARM

We are harvesting lots of greens and watching as our first zucchini and sugar snap peas appear in the fields.

We are taking care of our potato plants by controlling those Colorado Potato Beetles (squish!).

We are planting melons and winter squash.
