The Farmer's Market

The Farmer’s Market – What better way to get your garden harvested, raise funds and give students a lesson in commerce?

 
 
After their spring harvest and Farmer's Market, students will be busy all over again, preparing the garden with organic soil amendments and planting a large crop to return to the following autumn.

Each year at the school's Open House in spring, the winter crop of lettuce, spinach, cabbage, kale, onions, garlic, flowers and herbs are harvested and sold to parents and other visitors.

Much of the operating budget for a school garden can be funded by the money raised during a Farmer's Market.
       
 
 
All proceeds from the Farmer's Market are tilled directly back into the program next year.
 
In addition to the vegetable and flower crops, the Farmer's Market offers chocolate-dipped strawberries, potted plants, garden gifts, bread and butter with herbs, and even worms for sale.
 
Each class makes two stepping stones. One is put in the garden and the other is sold at our annual Farmer's Market in spring.
