Farmers Market!

Farmers Market

Some of the St. Rose’s Volunteers running the table.

In the fall St. Rose’s Garden ran one of the stands at Sodexo’s on-campus farmers market outside of the McGinley Center. St. Rose’s volunteers harvested some of our best veggies from the garden and sold them to students passing by. We had an array of peppers, tomatoes, herbs, and baby eggplants. It was a great way to promote the importance of organic and locally grown produce. Everything from juices, to pickles, to canned beats were being sold. The event helped to fundraise for the garden also helped recruit some new helpers!  Thanks to everyone who put in time at the stand. We’d also like to thank Sodexo for letting us be a part of such an awesome event! We’re looking forward to being a part of the farmers market again next fall!
