May we suggest.....

A ROSE PARK FARMERS MARKET!

I have lived in this neighborhood for 30 years, and each year, as the mornings begin to get cooler I think about our garden. My parents grew more than we needed usually, and each year I remember sharing the crop with neighbors and friends.

Though our houses may be small (I prefer to say "responsible") our lots are fairly large for a neighborhood with such urban proximity. These large yards allow us to cultivate gardens that can benefit others. In addition, we have folks in our neighborhood who paint, bake, sew, build, etc. that should all have a local outlet to share their talents with the rest of us, for a reasonable fee :)

We at RPR are looking for a half dozen volunteers to head up the Rose Park Farmers Market Committee. Over the next several months the committee will meet to discuss the scope and size, location, marketing, and potential offerings for the summer of 2011's Rose Park Farmers Market. If you are interested, please drop us a line at roseparkrevival@gmail.com We think this idea is a perfect fit for our community! Please help us make it a reality by helping us get it off the ground. Thanks in advance for your support!
