Our First Saturday Distribution

On Saturday Sept 4th we had an amazing distribution, instead of the share holders coming to the market we delivered the veggies to their homes.We were also at the community market talking about Veggie City. The market went well not just for Veggie City, but everyone else that was selling their goods that day.   We had tons of cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, banana and jalapeno peppers. Most of our herbs have finished for the season. As usual we got into our teams and we got right to picking the veggies. At one of the houses we had a lot of tomatoes and it took three of us to bring back the baskets. When we got back to the market we started counting so every share holder has the same number of veggies in each bag.  After counting we all went to deliver to the share holders, and when we were done we headed back to the storage bin to put our bikes and the bins back that was our Saturday.

From the Kipps Lane Market we hope to get new share holder's and keep the share holder's that helped with veggie city this year. Our goal is to expand veggie city into different parts of the city.
