Classroom Visits are Awesome!

We enjoyed the fall season with four schools this year. A big thank you to the classes from Leetonia, Crestview, Salem, and Mohawk for spending time here with us! We appreciate your hard work, enthusiasm, interest in what we do, and laughter. We had a lot of fun with all of you and your help made our fall work go faster. We are looking forward to your return in the spring!

Goodness Grows Clients Out & About

Our folks have been busy with all sorts of activities recently, including a dance and a musical. All of them enjoyed an evening together at the Heroes & Halos Special Needs Ball. Two of them starred in the special needs production of The Music Man Jr. through Crown Theater Productions in Columbiana and the rest enjoyed attending the performance! We are so proud of all of them and all they accomplish.

Cranberry Jalapeno Jungle Jam Time

Our Canfield Fair Best of Show Cranberry Jalapeno Jungle Jam is back! Since we try to be seasonal with our ingredients, this favorite jam is only available for a limited time during fall and winter. Fresh cranberries are back in the stores and our crew has been hard at work filling jars for our upcoming shows. Cranberry Jungle Jam is the perfect accompaniment to your holiday meals and it makes a great hostess gift, holiday gift, stocking stuffer, or any other type of gift you could need. Come see us at one of the events on our schedule below to get your jar!

Looking for our jam and can't make it to a show? Contact us through our website, on Facebook, send an email, or give us a call! We would be glad to arrange a pick-up or delivery. Or, if you are out shopping, our jams are carried in Salem at Reach for the STARS, the Supplement Station, and Simply Scarves...and Such. They are also at the other three Simply Scarves...and Such locations in Columbiana, Austintown, and Minerva.
