Backyard Chickens & Gardeners - give eggs and / or produce
monthly or seasonally. Some supplies provided (boxes, cartes, seeds). Drop off @ Midtown Center first Saturday of the month. Or second Sunday, "Garden Share" monthly or "Garden Share & Craft Expo" quarterly. Just look for blue bins. Contact us to sign up.
