Farmigo is back at Spring Garden!

Farmigo is a service brought to us by the PTO’s Health & Wellness Committee. It is an online farmer’s market where you can shop for a variety of seasonal fresh food from local farms and producers-vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, eggs, dairy, breads, and more. The website provides great information about each product including where and how it was grown or produced. Since the majority of it comes from small family farms within 2 hours of the greater NY area, the food is super fresh and is generally harvested within 24 -48 of delivery.

Also, in addition to being an easy way to access fresh, local food, 10% of the money from your purchases goes towards raising funds for the school.

To try it out,click on our school marketplace here: www.farmigo.com/springgardenschoolpto to join. There are no fees or minimums of any kind. Place your order Sundays by midnight and then pick up your order each Wednesday, between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm at the Spring Garden School auditorium.
