Good evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

Go to the market >>
Fresh Vegetables
Clean Meats
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Gluten Free goodies
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*

Champaign, OH:  Pretty In Pink


Pretty in pink, isn’t she?
Pretty in pink, isn’t she?
(Psychedelic Furs)

Good morning, lovelies!

Just a market note to say, Happy Friday, the market is open, there is so much loveliness to order, and also to remind you that asparagus season is fleeting, so make sure you take full advantage on the market orders!!

Pretty In Pink is the song rambling around in my head, this morning for a few reasons. First, last evening, as I do each evening, I was watering all of my plants, planters, ferns, and enjoying a glass of wine on my back deck. I sat down, for a moment, glanced up at the sky, and saw the most brilliant hot pink sunset smashed against the bright blue sky. So amazing.

I went, inside, where I had just arranged a cobalt blue vase full of the LOVELIEST pink peonies that Flourish has on the market, and once again, a pretty in pink moment! Another reminder that they have had the most beautiful peonies on the market, for ordering, but like asparagus, the season doesn’t last long, so order these beauties!

Finally, this song…a staple from my 80s club days, and, also, a group of my pals are all headed off to see the Psychedelic Furs and X, in July! Hello, club days!!

Have a lovely pink filled days, and take a bit of time to order your own loveliness from the market!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Miami County Locally Grown:  The Ground Beneath Our Feet


Shop here

I used to work for a county soil and water conservation district (SWCD), of which there is one in every county in the state, in most states. These government organizations were born out of the “Dust Bowl” of the 1930s, when prolonged drought ruined farms because all of the topsoil blew away. The federal government realized that conserving soil was vital to the nation, thus a great conservation effort was launched that continues to this day. Free technical assistance is available to farmers to implement what is termed Best Management Practices.

I learned a lot from that job. Most importantly, I learned that soil is more complex than just its physical components (e.g., particle size, mineral content, water-holding capacity, etc.) Healthy soil has a vital biological component—an entire living ecosystem that exists within the framework of its physical structure; that is, within the thin layer of topsoil. Topsoil is only a few inches deep at most, and many, many decades are needed for nature to decompose plant and animal mass to produce more of it.

Hence the need to understand and conserve existing topsoil and protect it from overuse of toxic herbicides and chemical fertilizers, wind and water erosion, and urban sprawl. All of our food comes from topsoil, whether it be directly from plants or the animals that graze on them. And the quality of vegetables, fruits, and meats is directly related to the biological and mineral balance of that soil.

Which brings me to the cusp of the next essay, two kinds of agriculture…
