The Dirt on Dirt

Get the “Dirt on Dirt” and learn how farmers use compost to grow the fruits and veggies we love. We’ll play games that help kids learn how to start their own compost piles at home. Join us Saturday and be ready to get those hands dirty!</p></td><td width="180" valign="bottom"><p style="padding: 0; margin:0; text-align: right;"><a href="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/"><img src="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/_email/core/ccfm-fresh-local.png" alt="ccfm | fresh & local" style="display:block;" width="180" height="80" /></a></p></td></tr></tbody></table><!-- FRESH & LOCAL IMAGE --><table width="560" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="padding-top: 30px;"><tbody><tr><td width="560"><p style="padding: 0; margin:0; text-align: left;"><a href="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/"><img src="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/_email/fresh/fresh-local-07-29-2013.jpg" alt="fresh & local image" style="display:block;" width="560" height="220" /></a></p></td></tr></tbody></table><!-- PICK OF THE WEEK --><table width="560" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="padding-top: 30px;"><tbody><tr><td width="140" valign="top"><p style="padding: 0; margin:0; text-align: left;"><a href="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/"><img src="http://www.crescentcityfarmersmarket.org/_email/picks/pick-07-29-2013.jpg" alt="pick of the week" style="display:block;" width="140" height="120" /></a></p></td><td width="420" valign="top"><h3 style="color: #363; font-size: 16px; margin: 0; padding: 0; text-align:left;text-transform: uppercase;">Pick of the Week: Okra!</h3><p style="margin:0;">Ask a group of New Orleanians the best way to cook the slime out of okra and you’re bound to get all sorts of different responses. One of our favorite ways is to roast okra whole in the oven under high heat until slightly charred, then sprinkle the pods with lime juice and salt.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><!-- GREEN PLATE SPECIAL --><table width="560" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="padding-top: 30px;"><tbody><tr><td width="420" valign="top"><h3 style="color: #363; font-size: 16px; margin: 0; padding: 0; text-align:left;text-transform: uppercase;">Tuesday’s Green Plate Special</h3><p style="margin:0;">This is <a href="http://www.redgravycafe.com/" target="_blank" style="color:#580; font-weight:bold;">Red Gravy’s</a> last Tuesday under the Green Plate Special tent.
