Conway, AR:  Market Reminder


Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

This is a reminder that the market closes tonight at 10pm. Have a great day.

Champaign, OH:  Specials!


Hello customers! Just wanted to highlight an option for you quickly. As some of our older customer might have noticed, we used to have a “what’s new” and “what’s featured” tab at the top of the market shopping page. For some of you, you still might. For others with older software on your devices, those highlighted areas went away upon a software change a few months ago. Until we get another upgrade, you can find those items listed at a special price under the “special” tab in the market list! Vendors have offered items in large enough quantities and at a special price for some real deals! Check it out!

Get your orders in before 8 PM tomorrow!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm Week of Jan 27 2013


www.old99farm.locallygrown.net

First, this week is the annual mecca event for organic farming: the Guelph Organic Conference. I have booked myself to the day seminar on Community Orcharding on Thursday. So, Market day has to be moved to Friday. If that messes you up considerably, we’ll make arrangements to suit you.

Please keep those egg cartons coming in; my layers are keeping right up with the egg production, and we need sumthin to put them in.

Does anyone want 10lb of bacon from Gourmet Meats? I’m going to pick up my stash next week, ie before Feb6th. If you want to stock up, it’s great bacon, wood smoked and frozen. John charges $50 so I’ll pick up for you if you let me know by Tues Feb 5th.

Fresh greens are getting scarce in my greenhouse, as you’ll see but I have LOTS of mizuna. Last week several of you tried it. How was it? Well, this week it’s a two for one deal, but only if you promise to eat it all .

If you are curious about the Guelph Conference, go surf their website and see what’s offered. You can attend for free and cruise the very large trade show. www.guelphorganicconf.ca or do the workshops for $40 a day. Well worth it, imo.

Mary Pipher notes that she thought that being lovable would be the most necessary attribute, but was incorrect – ultimately the ability to love others, to turn to selfless care of others is the single most important thing any of us can have as a kind of resilience. She sees this as also the best response to trauma – the raise (sic) in self-confidence and comfort when you can help another.
