What a great launch! Thanks to everyone who came out to Karen's "Know Your Roots" cooking demo at the Hamilton Farmers' Market Community Kitchen and supported our FEB IS FARM MONTH launch.
Special thanks to our volunteers, Sarah and Chris. They helped us hand out cupcakes made by Cupcake Diner using Carluke Orchard apples.
Shout out to Sapphire and volunteer Wendy for all their help!
