We are pleased to welcome our guests the Missouri Department of Conservation and Tulips on Troost to help us celebrate our
ANNUAL FLOWER FESTIVAL (June 19th) at FARMERS' COMMUNITY MARKET at BROOKSIDE.
Missouri Department of Conservation will be there to share more about their Grow Native program. A joint program of the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and the Missouri Department of Agriculture (MDA), the Grow Native! program helps protect and restore our state's biodiversity by increasing conservation awareness of native plants and their effective use.
By building partnerships among private industry, non-profit organizations, government agencies and landowners, Grow Native! aims to significantly increase the demand for and use of native plants on all landscapes.
For those of you that came to market last week - thanks! What a soggy mess! And it's pretty soggy here too - so much so that 2 pairs of my crocs are out in the field, stuck in the mud. But......... Saturday is supposed to be beautiful - so come to market and stock up on some early summer bounty!
This week we will have graffiti cauliflower - bright purple and delicious, white cauliflower, cabbage, cucumbers, piles of zucchini, broccoli, fresh cut basil, beautiful onions, yellow and purple new potatoes, yummy kale and more.
Hope to see you all Saturday.
Lonnie and Jeanna and Logan

Starting at 9:30 am, Fine Kettle of Fish serve up a tasty mix of bluegrass, country, gospel and Irish music. Brookside residents David and Barbara Fines met Bruce Eddy at St. Francis Xavier church in the 1990s. Away from their day jobs, these veteran musicians have resumes that cover the entire range from jazz and blues to country and classical. The three quickly discovered a shared sense of humor and an ability to blend uncommon musical ingredients that create their unique sound. This year Dan Fines, a sophomore at Bishop Miege joined the group.
