Neighborhood Farmer’s Market Starts This Month

Myriad Growers LLC will begin hosting a Farmer’s Market at Sunnyside Environmental School, beginning Monday, Sept. 12. Mixed vegetables will be available on Mondays between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. through most of October. The end date will depend on weather, produce availability and other factors related to farm production. The market will be located on the lawn in front of the school, near the corner of 35th and Salmon.

Myriad Growers is an urban farming partnership, dedicated to nourishing the health of the land and the community, through the use of holistic horticultural practices, education and joyful service.

Myriad Growers  is blessed with the opportunity to cultivate and steward the land known as JEAN’s Urban Forest Farm.  Nestled between Johnson Creek and a patch of native forest below the street line, the farm is a sweet little oasis, where they are pleased to be working away at their myriad projects, which include lovingly raising wholesome food and medicine plants, native plants for restoration projects, sedums and sempervivems for eco-roof installations, and flowers for bouquets.  Educational programs, cooking in the outdoor kitchen, and our flock of chickens, also add to the fun.

For the past few years, Myriad Growers has worked with SES students, providing sustainability curriculum and helping them develop strong connections to the local food system, learn about health and nutrition and the fun of cooking and baking in the school’s community kitchen, as well as engaging with the native ecosystem through ecological studies and restoration projects.
