Tip of the Week -March 6
Placeholder Image

All the signs are there, friends – a bad economy, the desire to get healthy, and our awareness that going green really is good. Growing your own herbs and vegetables just makes sense. You pay pennies a pound for healthy foods for your family that you’ve grown with your own two hands. You have an abundant supply of vegetables during harvest and you can freeze and/or can the surplus. It’s a win-win situation. If the thought of starting your own garden is a little daunting, consider attending an informational meeting about Newton County’s Community Gardens at The Church at Covington on Monday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m. You can call the folks over at Hands On Newton for more information at (770) 330-7405. No experience necessary. I hope to see y’all there!
