6/23 Ely Farmers Market, Sat. 8-noon

Don't forget to stop by the Ely Farmers Market on Saturday at the Ely Community Center to pick up your locally grown, baked and handcrafted goods.  We are hoping for a nice morning!  I think there is a big bike ride starting from Odie's tomorrow morning, so we are hoping for some extra visitors.
Vendors will be able to set up tables at our usual market location on the 4th of July from 8-noon.  Please contact if you plan to be a vendor that day.
Also, we have set our dates for the 2012-2013 winter markets:

Community Garden Update

Community gardeners have been busy planting up at our new garden site after a somewhat bumpy, but experience earning beginning.

We are grateful to Russ Lehman, President of Sign Productions of Cedar Rapids for the loan of a large water tank that will be used for watering the gardens. Thanks to some hardworking individuals, the tank has been rinsed and should be filled and ready for use this afternoon, just in time for our super hot weekend.  We are grateful for all the help and support! 

For more information about our community garden project, see the Community Garden tab on the right.

Something new!

I am trying an experiment to determine if a blog dedicated to the Ely Farmers Market, Seed Library, and community gardens will help consolidate information dissemination as well as grab a few non-facebook users.

Feel free to add comments an discussion!
