This Saturday! Winter Farmers' Market returns

Bundle up and come join us for our second Winter Farmers' Market of 2010 on Saturday, February 20th. As always, we will be providing the freshest, most local homemade baked goods, fresh meats, natural skin care, herbs, preserves, and more! The Market will run from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm at Swindlers' & Sons Florists (321 W. Locust St., Wilmington, Ohio).

Additionally, while at the Feb. 20th Market, why don't you let Sycamore Tree General Store help you get a jump start on your Spring planting with their free gardening class..."Starting Seed with Soil Blocks - A plant-healthy, economical, & environmentally friendly way to start plants from seed."

This class will cover the basic ingredients and techniques for making and using soil blocks, transplanting using soil blocks, advantages for healthy seedlings, money saving ideas, and more. Participants in the class will receive a free booklet with additional information and techniques for making & using soil blocks. Come get a jumpstart on your spring planting and try your hand at a fun new technique that produces great results. Additional tools, books, seeds and resources will be available for purchase.

The class will begin at 10:00 am on the 20th. For more information, please contact Tim or Jamie Patten at info@STGeneralStore or by calling 937-987-0988.

As always, we encourage you to place a pre-order before Thursday, Feb. 18, to ensure that our local growers have enough of the products you want.

Hope to see you there!
