Greenfield Hill Grange Farmers’ Market Announces Vendors

Don't look so cute and innocent, I know you ate the tops off my radishes. Add cages to your raised square food gardening beds to deter cute varmints who like to wreak havoc.

There are 3 farmers’ markets running during the spring and summer season in the Town of Fairfield this summer, the newest being the Greenfield Hill Grange Farmers’ Market at 1873 Hillside Road. Open from 9-1 on Saturdays, the market features 8 vendors and weekly special guests. This Saturday Certified Square Food Gardener Amie Hall will be holding a square foot gardening demo from 10:30-11:00am. I love square food gardening and advise anyone who wants to start up a home garden quickly and easily to take advantage of this opportunity. We now have 9 raised beds in the square foot style and they make so much sense. If you’re worried about critters, please staple chicken wire to the underside to stop burrowers and add on top cages (easily removable and lightweight) to deter all varmint from nipping and pillaging.

Also this Saturday, June 4, Julie Moffat, owner of Qigong for Health, will be offering 2 sessions of Qigong classes during the market. Qigong is a mind/body, self care practice from China. It coordinates gentle movement, relaxed breathing and meditation with self-massage to energize the body. Read more about it here: http://www.followyourqi.com/Home_Page.html
