We're excited to welcome our Uptown neighbor the Audubon Zoo to our Tuesday market with their ZooDoo Gold! Created on Audubon Zoo grounds, ZooDoo Gold compost is made from the zoo's plant clippings, tree chippings, Live Oak leaves, shredded office paper, shredded cardboard boxes, coffee grinds (with the appropriate acidic base), Audubon Tea Room food scraps and "contributions" from their zebra, ostrich and elephants. The zoo will be at our Tuesday market every other week, starting this week, this spring, so be sure to come by and grab a bag of this great new product.

We're compost crazy this week at the CCFM! Thursday we welcome Crescent City Compost Coalition to the market. Alyssa Denny will educate folks about how to compost at home. Come by the market and learn how you can start wasting less and growing more! Crescent City Compost Coalition will be at our Thursday market for the month of April.

We were thrilled to see dark honey on Paw Paw's table last weekend. Did you know that dark honey has more antioxidants than lighter colored honey (an anti-oxidant powerhouse to begin with!)? Darker colored honey also contains more minerals - mainly iron, copper and manganese, which makes it especially fit for medicinal purposes. Add it to your morning coffee, tea or spring cocktail, slather some on toast, or even apply it to a sunburn. Grab a jar from Paw Paw this Saturday and let the healing begin!
