By Francie Lin, GFN Writer-in-Residence I think everyone would rather forget the early pandemic days…
The growing season is upon us, time to plant some seeds! On Saturday, March 13 from 10-1pm all donated seeds plus extras provided by Grow Food Northampton will be available for pick up at the Winter Farmers Market located at Smith Vocational Highschool (Note: the Farmers Market is not at the Senior Center this month). Seeds will be free of charge. Please note that depending on the amount of seeds available, we may limit the number of seed packets each person can take. We will also be welcoming and sharing gardening tips, tricks, and inspiration for this next growing season – so come prepared to learn and celebrate!
