The 1st LCO Farmer’s Market will take place on Friday, August 6th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the parking lot of LCO IGA, in Hayward, WI. We have 3 confirmed vendors and hopefully will get more – but its a start! This will be a weekly event through the end of September. Submitted by Amber Marlow, LCO Green Team.
Happy Tonics is a member of the LCO Green Team and we applaud everyone who worked so hard to make this a reality. Let’s support our local farmers and stop importing petro food from far and wide. The community that can feed itself is sustainable. Any questions please contact Amber Marlow at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to mention that Shell Lake Farmer’s Market is part of the Green Teams effort to promote local grown food. We are in our third year. For information contact John Mahur, (715) 468-7544. Happy Tonics plans to have a table at the Farmer’s Market to sell our teas which we are drying now for packaging. We will also have our events calendar available for visitors who wish to discover Shell Lake’s Native Wildflower and Butterfly Garden.
Today I stopped by the Farmer’s Market and bought fresh local corn, beets and kale. There was also green tomatoes, snap peas and green beans. Right now I am boiling the kale. I grew potatoes at Lakeland Manor senior housing complex. Yes, we have our own container gardens too. Many seniors living here came from a agricultural background and feel happy knowing we are growing our own vegetables even if in a limited way.
Be happy insectamonarca friends where ever you you.
