The Alfred Farmers Market wants to thank everyone who participated in their first ever seed sale fundraiser. To the market’s great surprise, there is still a high volume of interest from community members who missed the first deadline in March but still want to participate. To accommodate these “late bloomers”, the market board has decided to open their seed sale fundraiser for a second round. This new deadline for orders is set for May 1st, 2020, so be sure to get your orders in by then.
Now is the time to think about self-reliance and growing your own “Victory Garden”. All seeds for the fundraiser are purchased from High Mowing Organic Seed Company. Think “Girl Scout Cookies”, but instead with high quality, easy-to-grow seeds. 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. 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 and help the Alfred Farmers Market remain a vital asset in the area.
