It's National Farmers Market Week

& we're celebrating our youngest growers on Saturday. The market sponsors, with the school, a Kids Community Garden just west of Madge T. James Kindergarten. (How appropriate is that - a kids garden by a children's garden - that's what kindergarten means in German).

The Open House will be this Saturday from 9 to 11. The young gardeners will be serving lemonade and giving tours. Their mentors, the master gardeners, will be on hand with gardening information.

The garden is ringed this year by marigolds planted by 400 kindergarten through second graders during summer school, so many little hands have planted the garden this year.

Please plan to stop by and encourage our youngest gardeners Saturday morning.
