Sustainable Westford would like to thank the many who came and supported our Winter Farmers Market at this past season. It was off to a slow start and we had some bumps and bruises easing into this new venue.
There was a learning curve working together, it is not every day that a business opens its doors wide open for a non profit to promote its mission. We all learned much from this experience from the Market Managers, vendors and Eric's staff and in the end it started to prove itself.
Maybe with a little luck our farmers can earn enough to build a few greenhouses to carry them and the community thru the next winter season. Let's hope and continue to support our local hard working farmers.
Thanks to all the volunteers and to the Westford Academy Team, a truly inspirational group of students who I have had the joy to witness their growth and take on some of the responsibilities of our market.
Our biggest shout out goes to Tom Goddard, the owner of Eric's Garden Center for providing the venue and willingness to contribute to the cause. Thank you all for the opportunity to help our community.
