Ancient Grains Bread

I live down in Stone County hear Branson West and Kimberling City, MO. When I can get into Springfield, I try to go to a Farmers' Market if on a market day or to Homegrown Foods, which has a lot to offer of natural, organic, non-GMO produce and meats and breads.  But, in between those visits where I forage for food, I buy locally and try to demand local at every opportunity... Recently, I found a great bread at Country Mart (Price Cutter) in Branson West.  No, it is not produced locally, but it…See More

Sowing the Seeds of a Fair Farm Bill Seed Swap at Not determined yet but hoping for the Battlefield Mall Farmers Mkt

April 16, 2011 from 9:30am to 3pm
Don't have the location locked down yet but the 1000 Garden Project, Mom's For Local Foods and The Well Fed Neighbor Alliance will be participating along with the Food & Water Watch. We expect to have at least one person taking video and photos and am hoping for a city official or two and (if I get lucky) maybe someone representing the state to attend and speak. My goal is to show people how many ways we can, and need to, support our local farmers and meat processors and how important a…See More

Banana Pseudo-trunk Cross Section

High Tunnel Subsidy, Apply before March 4th

High Tunnels Extend Growing Season; Apply for USDA Funds Before March 4 to Use on High Tunnels

 

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Many agriculture and horticulture experts believe high tunnels are going to become a familiar part of the American agricultural landscape, the 21st-century equivalent of silos and red barns.

Well Mimi we have used the arena for training horses and Auctions. We like the auctions and would like to see a successful Farmers Market. I'm working on a system to catch rain water fromthe arena. In a 1 inch rain about 10,000 gallons of water comes off the roof. So if I can harness the water I can irregate one big garden. So right now we are just waiting to see what direction the Lord takes us next. Thanks for you comment

It was a wonderful experience for me to see such enthusiasm for your project in these energetic young people 'turned on' to gardening... and may I say that you did a masterful job in planning and executing the experience.

Sounds like you had a great Earth Day! The Native Plant Garden that we were putting in with the kindergarten and 1st graders of Sunshine Elementary had to be rescheduled. We're going for next Thursday. Let me know if you are pouring Wednesday. Would love to see this art installations in action!
