Thanks so much to Mark of Sierra Club and Karen of Inner City Outings for taking us on a wonderful canoe trip down (and up) the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter. Thanks also to Mr. Dell for driving, Jesus for chaperoning, and all the other great volunteers who made the trip a complete success. We are looking forward to the next trip soon!

We were treated royally and fed well. We got to meet and speak in front of some of Miami's legal elite, winning their admiration and pledge for continuing support. Thanks guys!
After lunch we made our weekly appearance at the Overtown Roots in the City farmers market on NW 10th Street and 2nd Avenue, selling our fresh organic produce to raise money for a new shade house.
Thanks to all our loyal customers for the great support and encouragement. The students are ecstatic to be meeting so many nice people and trying so many cool new things!
The garden team was cooler than cool though, unloading plenty of refreshing passion fruit, crispy spring onions and invigorating herbs. We got to sample goat's milk chocolate ice cream from Hani, and vegan ceviche and cranberry scones from Michele--all excellent and natural.
Despite earlier plans to close for the summer, Roots in the City Overtown farmers market will remain open year round, continuing to provide fresh local produce to a growing clientele.
Come see us next Wednesday afternoon!
