Community Market an Ongoing Success

Getting fresh produce on the dinner table just got a lot easier for folks in the Upper Lake Melville area. Happy Valley Goose Bay kicked off the first of it’s summer community markets this weekend. Jill Airhart is with the Food Security Network - and helped organize the market. She joins us live in the studio. Also, if you went to the market, you may have purchased flowers or veggies from one growing group… the elementary students in Happy Valley-Goose Bay who’ve been working hard at the community garden. Our Colleen Connors stopped by the community garden earlier this summer and spoke with a few students while they planted. As well, Peacock Primary’s environmentally friendly ways caught the attention of MMSB, who put the students and their principal Sandra Broomfield in a green report for television.
