Jonesborough Locally Grown: Tomorrow at the Market (Oct 27th)
It’s the last Saturday market!
Because we value you ALL, below you will find both a generic and farmer-by-farmer list for our closing week!
But first—want to make sure you all know a couple of things:
1) Our market will be open online all winter, with the exception of Christmas week. Several new vendors are planning to sell online so we should see more produce as long as it’s available, plus goat cheese, lamb, chicken, beef, sausage, breads, croissants & more! Market will open for ordering November 4th.
2) NEW for the holiday season: Farmers market gift baskets! We have designed two sizes (thank you Bear) and you will be able to customize your own or purchase a pre-selected gift assortment. More details to come! The baskets will be available starting mid-November online, and also at the holiday markets in Jonesborough (Saturdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas). Samples will be on display at the info booth tomorrow. Come check them out and start to think about all the great gift possiblities from the market!

Republican Valley Produce: RVP-Check out the Changes
The time has come to make a few changes. With the Farmers Market drawing to a close, it will be time to have a new pick-up schedule in Manhattan. Since our daughter graduated from speech (HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT), we will move our delivery point to CICO park, where the Wednesday Farmers Market is at. Pick up will be between 5:15 and 6:00.
With that said, for each of the Winter markets in Manhattan, first one Saturday November 3rd, we will schedule our delivery to the winter market and not Wednesday night. I will make up a schedule and share it with everyone ASAP.
If you are in Clay Center, I will deliver your orders on Tuesday. If you order any breads or Cheeses, I will delivery them to you on Saturday afternoon.
About the Farm, we are starting to pick our lettuce. It seems like it has been a long time coming! Truth be told, it was really only 4 weeks ago! The Kale is coming along, so is the chard.
Remember, orders are due by Sunday at 5pm, Clay Center deliveries will be on Tuesday and Saturday in Manhattan at the first winter Market at Pottorf Hall.

Suncoast Co-op: Learn about Permaculture and create your own victory garden with these upcoming workshops!
At the Suncoast Co-op we look at our farmers as our hero’s these supermen and women get up daily to grow the food that sustains our society. But over the years the farmers role from provider of sustenance was transformed into a provider of commodities. We have grown a food supply that is incredibly reliant on one energy source; Fossil fuels, the average food calorie takes 10 calories of oil in order to be produced. Also with the advent of petrochemical fertilizer and herbicides these poisons that work as neurotoxins are sprayed all over our food in order to increase the overall profitability of the farm.
Saving money on our food in the short term, but increasing our health costs in the long term. We cannot keep this system going forever. So instead we choose to learn and activate a different direction. Victory Gardens! With modern day techniques and design practices the average backyard grower can produce more then enough for themselves and sell or trade the surplus. With gardens we can grow our way out of the local depression and into a active economy. Out of a garden enough surplus can be produced to increase our local food resilience.
In our Victory Garden workshop you will learn how plants work, how to create thriving soils out of Florida sand, Pest identification, different styles of gardening, as well as planting schedule for Florida gardeners. Come to the class and receive free edible plants! The class is around 3 hours and is $30 or $15 for Sunoast Co-op members. If you are financially unable to pay for the classes contact us for volunteer time bank hours you can trade volunteering in Kinship Garden for workshop.
In our introduction to Permaculture course we will give you the tools to start designing your home to be more conscious design to create sustainable human habitats. Learn how to connect different pieces of the puzzle with your garden to increase fertility. Learn about the founders of permaculture, permaculture concepts from around the world, and how you can design your own permaculture homestead. Learn a step by step process of growing your very own food forest here in Florida! Come to the class and receive free edible plants! The class is around 3 hours and is $30 or $15 for Sunoast Co-op members. If you are financially unable to pay for the classes contact us for volunteer time bank hours you can trade volunteering in Kinship Garden for workshop.
Proceeds of the workshop will benefit both Habitat for Humanity’s mission and the Suncoast Co-op’s goals as well of making an edible New Port Richey.
Here are the class notes so you can see what to expect to learn. We will also have social networks for you to join in order to share knowledge, ideas, organize gardening together as a community for free.
Help us spread these workshops by going to our facebook and RSVPing to attend! Share the events with your friends and neighbors in New Port Richey and West Pasco/North Pinellas areas. Suncoast Co-op Facebook Fanpage Thanks!
