Hello All,

I would like to extend an invitation to the ZONE Farmers Market October 6th. ZONE is the youth garden program which focuses on issues of sustainability, food insecurity, hunger and food systems. This year the program had the opportunity to develop a garden on ¼ acre of land off of Irving St, behind out Woodruff and Ashland locations. By visiting other local community garden spaces, the participants developed the layout and plans for a 100 ft by 100 ft plot of the ¼ acre.

The staff and participants hope you all can make it out to tour the space and purchase various products using produce grown and harvested from the garden.

See you October 6th!
