Collaboraton! JW’s Farm & Harmony Gardens…

This week at Atherton Market, JW’s Farm and Harmony Gardens combined forces to bring you a great selection of delicious, sustainably grown, chemical-free, winter produce!

 

Being the time of year where neither of our garden’s are producing at full tilt, (c’mon, it got down to 24 degrees in Charlotte last night!) JW & dhijana have worked out a partnership to sell both of our offerings from one booth on Saturdays from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. We’ll be taking turns “minding the store”… so that you’ll still have access to BOTH farmers’ goods each week!

Go on, flirt a little. You know you want to!

Exploring eco-friendly ways to eat, shop, and live in Charlotte, North Carolina.One of the best things about Saturdays at the Farmers Market is meeting like-minded people & getting to know them better – one conversation at a time – weekend by weekend, month by month.  

When we first met Jen, she was just starting up the EcoFlirt blog and website and look at it now! We are so impressed with all she’s done and we’re even more flattered that she’s mentioned JW’s Farm not once… but twice!  

Click on the pics below (EcoFlirt originals!) to read about the very first time we flirted, back in the spring on the patio at the Common Market South End,

Our baby seedlings. Representin' yo!

 PS. Be sure to leave plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the EcoFlirt site, as well. It is a terrific resource for the Charlotte eco-minded and the eco-minded-to-be! We’re certain you will leave there inspired to live a little greener!!

FRESH – New thinking about what we’re eating.

The Montgomery Community College Foundation and Sustainable Sandhills will be sponsoring a public showing of the film Fresh, The Movie, June 15, at 6:30 PM in the Multi Purpose Room on the Montgomery Community College campus. They have invited a panel of experts to be present after the movie to answer any questions viewers may have about our local growing economy. In addition, local growers will have tables set up to sell their goods to the audience.

This event will also kick off their new programs: Farm-to-Table and Wednesday Farmers Market at MCC. Farm-to-Table is a series of classes and seminars through Continuing Education, Small Business Center and North Carolina State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to educate interested students in the business of selling produce they grow and best practices for better production. The Wednesday Farmers Market will run from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and begin on June 16 on the MCC Campus.

and help spread the word!
