green is the new red: Valentine’s winter market

on Valentines day we celebrate our love and appreciation to the people we care about but we can do so while supporting our community and our planet !

check out some amazing local treats from creative hands and farmers cellars at the Valentines winter market from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion. there will be a variety of local vendors including  farmers bringing meat and eggs, artisan cheese, homemade bread and baked goods, spices, art, jewelry, t-shirts and apparel handmade soaps and much more!

local products typically have a smaller ecological footprint and they also help to build our community and local economy.

love ❤ xoxo

The Organic Farm ~ gentle sustainable good

Mike and Melba Rabinowitz started The Organic Farm back when ‘green’ was a colour and ‘organic’ had little to do with marketing.  it’s a good feeling, and a great first vid of the new year.

in the summer of 2011 thegreenrock.ca Green Team visited The Organic Farm on Churchills Road in Portugal Cove – St. Phillip’s.  Melba R. shared the story with Anna, (Mike R. made a cameo!) .

you might think that mid-winter is scarce on fresh but eureka! – Louis R. is growing the mirco-greens.  they are an excellent source of vitamins in the winter (salads, soups, sandwiches or snacks).  get some, and give yourself, your family, your community and your planet a nutritious hug.  samples, consignments or questions email organicfarm@nl.rogers.com or leave a message for Louis  at 895-2884 (house) or 689-7693 (farm).
