Meet Melanie Callenbach of Toad Haven Farm!
 
Toad Haven Farm is an urban garden in Roswell that uses organic no-till methods to grow  produce. Melanie grows flowers in pots throughout her garden and in surrounding beds to encourage beneficial insects such as bees and ladybugs to visit. Toad Haven is located close to a small stream, resulting in quite a few resident toads! Melanie went to college at Temple University for Horticulture and later transferred to Cornell University to study Integrated Pest Management. Since then, she has worked as a greenhouse manager, landscaper, and as a gardener at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Over the past 12 years, with the help of her husband, Melanie has been able to expand the garden to about 1500 square feet. Melanie says she "loves being a market gardener, talking about produce and recipes with market customers, and being a part of the local food movement!" Be sure to stop by Toad Haven Farm to say hello & check out the unique varieties of produce available!

Power of Produce Activity:

Parts of a plant scavenger hunt!

This week the children's activity will be a scavenger hunt! The children will be on the look out for the different parts of a plant that can be eaten around the market. They will draw or write down their findings!
 
Soon to accept SNAP/EBT Benefits!
We have recieved a grant from the Farmers Market Coalition to purchase EBT equipment. We are so excited to be expanding accessibility and affordability of fresh fruits and vegetables in North Fulton County. We hope to be up and running with our program by the end of June. Stay tuned!
