The SECOND of four monthly farmers market at St. Paul's will be held Saturday, July 18, 2015. The market hours are from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature fresh produce on a pay-at-what-you-want basis.
Thrive is an outreach-church development group that has been seeking ways to make a difference in community life. The garden project was launched last year. Members of St. Paul have partnered with DeKalb County Community Gardens in organizing the market. Residents will pay what they want for the produce and any profits from this sale will be turned over the the DeKalb County Community Gardens organization.
Members of St. Paul’s maintain a community garden on the church grounds. We work in the garden every Tuesday night from 6:30-7:30 PM, weather permitting. Any one who has produce from a backyard or community garden can donate on market day, provided the produce has been picked within 24 hours of the market day.
More information can be found at www.thrivemarket.org. or by calling 815 756 4888, the St. Paul Episcopal Church office, Monday through Thursday. See the article in the Daily Chronicle from Friday, June 12.
