Just wanted to let you all know about a meeting you might be interested in next Monday the 4th. For some years now we, at the Carrboro Farmers’ market, have been talking about forming our own “Friends” organization like many markets around the country, to help support the market and work on community issues around sustainable agriculture. The Friends of The Carrboro Farmer’s Market is being developed as a tax exempt organization to undertake charitable and educational activities related to agricultural issues. We want to hear your ideas of what you would like to see from a Friends organization and explore opportunities for you to be involved in its formative stages and future projects. Come join us for fun evening and help build greater support for sustainable agriculture! The meeting is going to be held at the Carrboro Town Hall (where market is held) at 7:30 p.m. This meeting is open to all, so if you have some ideas you’d like to share, please come and bring a friend. If you’re interested in attending , please email firstname.lastname@example.org
On another farm front, as you know we are very proud of the people who have worked for us and especially the ones who have gone on to start their own farms. You may also know that we have helped several get started by letting them use part of our land to grow their first crops. We are pleased to announce yet another farm start up with Cov’s debut at the Wednesday Farmers’ Market last week. He is using a half an acre in our bottom field and is producing some beautiful stuff down there. Look for him in the other shelter on Wednesdays.
