This is the kind of event that is a natural for Prairie Food Co-op to be a part of!
Come and join us for SCARCE's annual kick-off to the growing season! Pre-order high-quality food scrap amended compost, browse a variety of sustainably-raised seedlings, meet local farmers, and shop for all of your springtime garden needs (including rain barrels!) from local farmers and vendors. The deadline for compost orders is Monday, April 30th. Pre-ordering guarantees your portion but day-of sales will be available on first come, first served basis.
This year's mini-workshop series will feature talks by local experts:
- Outdoor home composting, Kay McKeen from SCARCE, 10:00 am
- Vermicomposting, Heather Goudreau from SCARCE, 10:45 am
- Permaculture, Mike Knapp, 11:30 am
