Goodness Grows News
Harvest Time is here!
Our gardens are full of local goodness.
We are Thankful for Farm Markets!
If you haven't made it to a market this summer, there is still time! You will still be able to find Goodness Grows at the Austintown Market on Monday evenings, at the South Ave. Market on September 18th for the Fall Market, at Howland on September 30th, and at the Flea on September 16th. We will be there with jam and more, along with plenty of other fantasic vendors!
Just like our other jams, there are many uses for our special peach creations. Try them on toast for breakfast, for second breakfast, for lunch, for tea - I could go on and on, because jam and toast is awesome any time of day, but you get the idea! People also enjoy these jams on cream cheese and crackers, on ice cream, on a peanut butter sandwich, as a glaze for meats...the possibilities are endless. If you have a favorite way to incorporate our Jungle Jams or Juicy Jams into your meals, we'd love to hear about it. Send us a message, or even a picture, and we would love to share your ideas on Facebook or on our website. (Our contact info is at the bottom of this newsletter.)
Our Final 2017 Mission Group
We wrapped up our mission trip time with the friendly folks from Sunset Hills United Presbyterian Church, from Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. This group was just as hard working and enthusiastic as the previous groups. They dug right into weeding (See what I did there???), trimming, building and setting up raised beds, and much more. We are grateful for their willingness to tackle any job set before them. Their help really keeps goodness growing!
Once again we want to offer our thanks and appreciation to Canfield Presbyterian Church for making these mission trips possible. Through their effort and their wonderful facility, our summer was brightened by all the new friends that were brought to the area! If anyone would like to learn more about working with Canfield to plan a mission trip, follow this link: http://www.canfieldpresbyterian.org/mission-housing.
Fall and Winter Craft Shows Coming Soon
