Exciting News for Fans of Locally Grown Food!
Cookeville Locally Grown, Inc., a new nonprofit organization, is spearheading an effort to enhance the local food system in our Upper Cumberland region. Jim Stockton, Randy Dodson and others will be using the 136 South Walnut Avenue property as a Farm Consignment store to make fresh local food available year-round, six days per week. Online ordering will be available, too.
This important development is the next step beyond our local farmers market. Onsite gardens and greenhouse at the Walnut Street Market will also be used to train gardeners and educate market farmers.
The first volunteer "clean up and dream up" weekend began on March 14 and 15 and significant progress was made. To find out how you can volunteer check out Cookeville Locally Grown on Facebook or call (931) 267-9242.
Great thanks to Dan and Cathy, Jeffrey and Kitty, Lachelle and Michael, Jim and Kathy, and Randy and Sandy, volunteers for the first weekend of work.
