Summertime Bounty

The summer is in full swing and we’ve been busy with the abundance of the gardens. Farmers are in the field most days harvesting in the mornings and evenings to beat the heat and bringing all the summer colors to market. The rows are bursting with produce waiting to be harvested and we are running trying to do it all! Wholesale orders are picking up, markets are full of people buying fresh produce and our tables are overflowing. In the meantime, we’re still doing weekly workshops, recordkeeping, field walks, events and gearing up for the FALL. We're going strong and asking you to keep going with us- come to our events, buy produce at market and eat at the restaurants that buy from us.

If you’re in KC this weekend and HUNGRY at all, please go to Local Pig’s food truck in the bottoms and order the special. A portion of the money from each special that is ordered goes directly to our program! We’re grateful to have such amazing partners here in the KC local movement. Until next time, come see us at markets this week!

Noodle beans, squash blossoms and 
all the herbs you can imagine!

Alicia assisting farmers with recordkeeping- 
this is the first year we are teaching farmers to 
budget using quickbooks!
Tula setting up outside Urban Provisions and Local Pig- come buy the special this weekend and a portion of the proceeds helps refugee farmers start small businesses!

We’ve still got the roots you need- come buy carrots, 
beets and radishes at the market this week!
Summer workshops are still in full swing- last week we focused on wholesale practices.
