Opening Bell


Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

It’s December 2nd, and close to seventy degrees outside – kinda scary, but at least the growing season isn’t quite over yet! Get fresh green things while you can though; our luck is bound to run out on the weather.
I hope you’re as happy as I am to hear that the Faulkner County Urban Farming Project reached its fundraising goal of $5,000 to build a rain water collection system for the garden site at Faulkner County Library! Many thanks to all of you who contributed. Public support for projects such as this can only be seen as a sign of the growing inertia behind the local food movement.

From Armstead Farm:
