Come out and sample some great dishes prepared by the chefs from Messina Hof, meet some local gardening experts and support the farmers in your community!

While you're there, you can pick up one of these fantastic new bumper stickers, proceeds of which go to support the activities of the Friends.

Finally, we need some volunteers to help man the Friend's booth on Saturday mornings between 8am and noon. This is a great way to get involved and show your support for our local farmers. If you would like to donate some of your time to the Friends then please contact:
