The 2019 growing season has begun. Thanks to our hoophouse and hydroponic systems, we can grow many crops year round. This week we will sell turnips, kale, and lettuce at the market. Visit us at Fondy Park and Market each Saturday where Walnut Way’s Growing Youth Leadership interns will sell produce and canned goods.
Harvest Day is a time to enjoy the abundance from the growing season and celebrate talent in the community for all ages with live music, dancing, arts, and…of course…great food! Join the celebration by sponsoring or becoming a vendor at Harvest Day this year.
