What did you think of the market pickup setup last week? As The Cumming Harvest welcomes new customers, we are quickly outgrowing our little home. So while the weather is nice, Saturday morning pickup will be outside!

Did you get to meet Reggie at the market last Saturday? Grow with the Flow, aka Reggie and Roger Ramos, joined the market last fall and have been providing us with greens for most of the winter. So it’s about time they had a proper introduction! Catalyzed by their mother’s battle with cancer eight years ago, these two GA Tech grads and military vets decided they seriously wanted to address the kinds of food that they ate. After a series of internships in the Atlanta area (one of which with own Cane Creek Farm), they were ready to grow their own food but were faced with the challenge of acquiring affordable farmable land in urban Atlanta. As an innovative solution to their own limited access to land, and in an effort to replace the wasteful American lawn, these two engineers have established Certified Naturally Grown “market gardens” in homeowners’ lawns in their Tucker neighborhood, using their own lawn as “home base.” Participating homeowners in turn receive a CSA-style share of vegetables each week. Known affectionately as “the Grow bros,” their slogan is “Grow- don’t mow!” Reggie and Roger also work with other organizations in their neighborhood, such as Tucker Orchard Guild, to strengthen their communities’ access to fresh food. Reggie recently became a Food Innovation Fellow through Food Well Alliance and is on a mission to bring a mobile food processing/ refrigeration unit to other farmers who may not have the funds to purchase necessary but expensive equipment. These modest brothers bring their produce to The Cumming Harvest each week, so let’s support the good that they do for us!
