It's that time of the year to start thinking about buying and planting your seeds indoors. Need a little help? Master Gardeners Eileen Brickman (owner #530) and Pat Lytwyn (owner #522) are eager to share their knowledge of seed planting via Zoom. Their presentation will be 20 minutes and 10 minutes for Q & A.
Immediately following the Seed Starting Presentation at 7:30, a Purple Carrot Market Informational Session will be held. This session is for anyone thinking about becoming an owner or is an owner that would like to learn more about the Purple Carrot Market. We will take you through the history of the organization, update you on where we are now, and inform you on what's next. There will be time for Q & A.
The presentations will take place March 8th from 7:00-8:00.

Stephanie Wall, Chief of Staff and cofounder of Seattle Zero Waste, gave an excellent, motivating presentation on Tuesday about the zero waste lifestyle that is sweeping the county. Stephanie inspired us with her expert knowledge.
A generous anonymous donor has offered the Purple Carrot Market a challenge. For every household or business that becomes an owner from now until the end of March, $50 in local foods will be donated to the Morrison County Food Shelf up to $1,000.
The challenge is to add 20 new Purple Carrot Market owners before the end of March. We could potentially reach 657 owners or more by the time the challenge ends; currently, we have 640 invested owners.
One way you can help us is by spreading the word about the challenge. See our Facebook post and share it. Not only would a new owner enjoy the benefits of becoming a Purple Carrot Market owner, but would also be supporting the local foods community. It's a win win situation!
A second way to help us in this challenge is to purchase a gift ownership for someone else. Why not consider a gift ownership for a Valentine present.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
