Hessel Grange Growers Exchange

By LeanneBaker on Sun, Sep 8, 2013 - 9:23pm

Just joined PP, and saw today's article in the PD.  All good.

I am attaching the text of an email about the Hessel Grange Growers Exchange held each Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.  A great place to meet neighbors, bring excess produce, exchange what you grow or make with others.  We've been semi-regulars for the past several summers.  (It was featured in the PD earlier this summer.)


ATTACHMENT:   Hi everyone,

The Growers Exchange is in full swing!  Come meet your neighbors and their family friends, Plants and Produce.  We have plenty of apples, squash and a wonderful variety of tomatoes, peppers, colorful beans and eggplant - even some smoked trout.

Thank you to the dog owners for observing our 'doggie guidelines'.  It is much appreciated.

Remember to park on the gravel parking lot and use the grassy area only for loading/unloading.  Also, the Grange has no garbage service.  What you pack in .....has to be packed out.  There will be a garbage bag for your convenience by the "free" table.  The Grange thanks you.......

Membership in the Grange is not required for Exchange participation but everyone is encouraged to support the Grange however they choose.  Membership is one way, as well as volunteering for maintenance or improvement projects, weed whacking, etc.

See you there.....


The Hessel Grange Community Grower's Exchange


Everyone is invited! Bring your neighbors and friends!

Come join us at the Hessel Grange Community Grower’s Exchange where you can meet your neighbors who grow good food and then trade what they have extra.

Hessel Grange 5400 Blank Rd every Wednesday at 4:30 to 6:30PM through October 9th.

The Grower’s Exchange started several years ago with neighbors getting together and trading their extra veggies.  We have grown since and continue to encourage knowing where your food comes from.

There is no cost to participate and you don't need to bring anything to attend.  Some of your neighbors just enjoy the afternoon learning about what grows well in our area and pick up some good information for their own gardening adventures.  As the season progresses, we will have lots of veggies, plants, eggs, potatoes from Blankity Blank Potatoes, apples, herbs and a variety of jams and pickled products.  Use your imagination - exchanging works! 

Not everyone attends every Wednesday and some only come once during the whole season. You never know what to expect, but you can expect to meet some friendly people, get some outstanding home grown food and have a good time. 


You will enjoy the company!
