Farm Stand and More

Let the markets begin!  We are marketing our produce and it looks great.  This last week was a really busy one with lots of learning and lots of running around.  Little things like knowing how many boxes we need, how to harvest new crops, and the importance of one dollar bills were all learned this week.

We opened the farm stand and began to meet the people who have been waiting for it to open.  It has a long history of being opened and many were waiting for it to sell again.  Several people were curious to meet the new farmers on the land and see what we have to sell.

This week is the second week we sold at Highline Community College.  With tremendous help from Kevin Stanley and his economics classes, the farmers learned how to set up the tables and talk to the customers about their produce and explain who they are.  The second week was more successful as more people on campus looked forward to the market and came prepared with money to spend!
