A Full Summer’s Harvest!

Friday, August 26, 2016  Before heading to shop at the market some people have been grabbing a bag – a recycled bag available for purchase at our CLT Market table – and then making the circuit among the assortment of vendors.

This week visitors got to speak with representatives from the Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association and learn, among other things, about an evening kayaking event featuring bioluminescence in a local pond.  Or, perhaps, learning about soil testing from one of URI’s Master Gardeners.

Did you know that Charlestown, specifically Ninigret Park, is noted for it’s Dark Skies, perfect for stargazing?

Next week’s music will be provided by Cassidy and Alex, a lively duo who will help us wrap up our 9th summer market season.  Why not take advantage of the URI Cooperative Water Quality booth joining us for our final market day?
