Students from Waldo Burton Memorial School return to the market as guest vendors this Tuesday. As part of the Cultivating Communities program at Longue Vue House & Gardens, the students have been studying gardening, philanthropy and entrepreneurism. This Tuesday they'll sell the vegetables and herbs they've grown at Longue Vue, including green garlic, a market shopper request from their last visit, and donate the proceeds to a non-profit organization of the students' choice. Please join us in welcoming these budding growers and entrepreneurs to the market, and check out their spring crop!

The gorgeous weather we've been enjoying for the past few weeks has us wanting to spend more and more time digging in the dirt. While it's a little late to be starting summer crops from seed, a vegetable garden is easily achievable with starter plants from Jesse Gaudet of Plant Diversity. Check with him for different varieties of tomato and pepper plants this Thursday.
