 Lexicon of Sustainability Pop Up Art Show This Week!
 The Lexicon project uses information art to illuminate the terms and solutions which define sustainability as it relates to "Food and Farming in America". It's an "idea incubator" using words and images of  the foremost practitioners of sustainability in food and farming. They have shared their insights and experiences… and contributed their words to our rapidly growing Lexicon of Sustainability because WORDS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF IDEAS. This pop up art show is made possible by Cultivate Kansas City. For more information about the project, visit http://www.lexiconofsustainability.com/.

Niles Garden Market - TUESDAYS 4p-6p - KCMO

These apples are out of the question...

Today we have red cabbage, LOTS OF CUCUMBERS, swiss chard, EGGPLANT, potatoes, ONIONS, garlic, kale, PURPLE* AND ORANGE CARROTS, beets, FRESH THAI & SWEET BASIL, and oregano.

Come on down to Niles at 1911 E 23rd, just
east of downtown, from 4 to 6 PM. Meet some of the kids and see the garden where we raise food and kids. The kids pick your veggies while you wait. Visit our solar powered waterfall too.

See how our newly planted fall seedlings are doing in the heat.



*Purple carrots are richer in antioxidants than lighter colored ones.
