Ana Edwards sent out a great e-mail this week letting everyone know about two great projects taking place. Here's what she had to say...
"To support our kids for being so bright and wanting to help the kids in Haiti, there will be a DONATION BOX at the market this week. Click the link "Kids Yard Sale for Haiti" at www.byrdhousemarket.blogspot.com to learn more. Special Thanks to vendor Rostov's Coffee & Tea for donating coffee to the cause.
Here's a little press from the Times Dispatch:
If you see Marlene, our Volunteer Environmental Coordinator, looking a wee tired it might be because she and a resilient assistant spent 6 hours on Saturday cleaning up the fence-line around the land that will be the BHM Farmlet. Blackberries will take the place of 6 truckloads of trash wood and weeds that our intrepid team carted out of there. Since we'd like Marlene and Pat to live into their next decades, why don't you come on out for the next Farmlet Work Out Day, next Saturday, Mar. 6. layout and notifying new vendors of their status... "
