Community Work Days!!

It is a sad thing to notice the last posting we managed to get on our website was the spring move, and here we are looking at the Fall move... sigh.. How does summer get away from us so easily??

Growing Lots is on the move once more... ! Ironically enough we are moving back down the block to the site we came from earlier this year... yep, we are indeed feeling a bit like yo-yo's. However, the move was necessary, and now we will have an expanded site available, a building with electricity (we know! watch out here we come :) , and at least a 3-4 years of stability. wheeew!

Growing Lots will be holding 2 work days for friends, family and community members to come help move the farm. We will have lots of jobs, and many hands make fun work, yes? Drop us an email ( for more information!!
