Are you an avid gardener? Winter is the perfect time to sift through seed catalogs, plan your harvest, and dream of warmer weather. This year, the Alfred Farmers Market has collaborated with High Mowing Organic Seeds on a seed-sale fundraiser. Think “Girl Scout Cookies”, but instead with high quality, easy-to-grow seeds. Since 2012, The Alfred Farmer’s Market has been celebrating Alfred’s food, farms, families and fun. The Market is a nonprofit organization, and needs to fund-raise each year in order to balance their budget and continue providing an outlet for local farmers and artisans. If you’re already planning on purchasing seeds for the growing season, this opportunity is a great way to also give back to your community.
The 100% certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified seeds are practical, useful, helpful and most importantly, hopeful as we all continue to strive for creating a positive and healthy planet. High Mowing Organic Seeds is a small grassroots Vermont-based company with an outstanding reputation that spans the nation. For every seed packet sold through the fundraiser, the Alfred Farmers Market is able to keep 50% of the profits. Each seed packet is $2.95, and there are 22 classic vegetables and three flowers to choose from. In addition to a wide selection of individual seed packets, High Mowing Seeds also offers a variety of thoughtfully curated boxed collections.
This year, the Market set the goal of selling 300 packets in the community with the deadline for orders by March 15, 2020. CLICK HERE FOR A LINK TO THE ORDER FORM. Please email MarketManagerinAlfred@gmail.com or call 518-937-3234 to place an order or simply print out the order form and mail to the farmers market with a check. Please mail all checks to the Alfred Farmers Market, PO Box 142, Alfred Station, NY 14803. With any purchase of $50 or more, Sasha Khodorkovskiy of Living Acres Farm in Alfred Station will give a free garden consultation. Don’t miss out on this easy, genuinely sustainable opportunity to show support for your local farmers market.
