I've mentioned before how we were planning to sell vouchers to pick strawberries as part of our plan to keep everyone housed and paid through the winter. Well, they're ready! And none too soon, as our trailer was stolen last week and Tractor Supply has declined to provide credit. So the first purch1 read more »

I don't mention it often here, but I manage the Dunwoody Farmers Market on Saturdays. I'm mentioning it now, because the market this Saturday has the potential to reach a milestone I didn't think would happen this soon - we're on track to have 50 booths!

A huge thank you to everyone who reached out with contacts to Atlanta Habitat for Humanity!
