Power to the people!!

This weekend the Market is going to be electrifying! Whether you need to recharge your body, home or soul, this Saturday we got you covered.

Local Artisan
If your feeling a little sluggish or somewhat drained, just spend a few moments this Saturday with Den Gorman. She has an amazing story and her positive outlook is contagious. When her husband, Pete, was diagnosed with acute lymbostic leukemia and given a 25 percent chance of survival, Deb says she dropped to the floor.  In August 2007 Peter received a stem cell transplant at the Dana Farber Cancer Center in Boston, Massachusetts.  His brother, Bill was his donor and saved his life! In the process, his blood type changed from A-positive to B-positive.
.

Hand Made Gold Jewelry from B+

Seeing how important stem-cell transplants are, Deb Gorman found a new passion: She started a company called, appropriately, B+, which makes jewelry and T-shirts, a portion of the proceeds go to the Stem Cell/ Bone Marrow Transplant programs at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

.
“Be positive; that’s always been our family motto.” As a family, grandparents, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, aunts and uncles, we rallied together with the incredible help from friends and talented doctors.
.

Hand Made Silver Jewelry from B+

Two years later our family is a stronger, healthier and  a more grateful family than ever before. Come and meet Deb, let her positive attitude infect you, check out her local hand made jewelry and help ease the next family’s cancer journey.

.
Deb knows first hand and will tell you herself. “You have the power and strength to overcome anything.”

Clean, Green with Power to Spare.
Now that we addressed your belly and your soul, how about some green juice for your home? Gossett’s Farm Market is very happy to have representatives from Community Wind Energy and Sun Blue Energy. Stop and chat with then about the benefits of wind and solar power and how to put these renewable energy resources to use in your home.
.
Curious about the pros and cons of Solar energy or how to purchase wind power from your local utility? Maybe you have some general questions about how renewable energy works? This is your opportunity to get all the information you need to help make your home and our community a little greener.

New Products from Gossett Brother Nursery

Heavy Guage Tomato Cage

Heavy Gauge Tomato Cage. (Say that 3 times fast!)

It’s kinda hard to get excited about a tomato cage, but allot of folks who see these heavy duty tomato cages are doing just that. These guys will hold up your tomato plants even if the tomatoes get as big as a watermelon! They have been flying out of the Nursery all week, and people have been commenting on how finally, someone has done a tomato cage right!
.

Hand Rakes

Hand Rakes

Hand Rakes

Ok these guys are not to win any awards for making in the fashion statement department. And there is a chance that your neighbors will look at you funny, but these Hand Rakes work. A customer requested them a few weeks back and we got some extra to use when we tidy up the Nursery. They work pretty good, and are great for small jobs or those tight corners where a rake just wont fit.
.

Garden Tools

Garden Tools

Pro-Lite Tools

We got a new tools into the Nursery this week, they are Pro-Lite tools from Radius Garden. These tool include Bulb Auger’s and Plant Transplanter’s. They are heavy duty, made of quality materials, professional grade and very ergonomic. We have use them out in the field for a few days and, so far,  they are living up to their reputation.
.
So come and get energized this Saturday at the Market and all weekend long at the Nursery. If nothing above has appealed to you, then come down on a Sunday (when the Nursery is a little quilter) and just stroll around to see a sampling of what nature has to offer. The absolute beauty of the plants, shrubs and trees available at Gossett Brothers Nursery is enough to inspire, calm and power you up. Come, wander and enjoy!!

The Lewisboro Garden club is also sponsoring a bake sale on Saturday. Homemade pies, cakes, cookies and other tempting treats will be on sale. One of the great services that the Lewisboro Garden Club provides to the community is the “Golden Roads” program.  This program, which has been a great success for the past 4 years, encourages homeowners and businesses to line their properties with daffodils. The Garden Club coordinates mass plantings of daffodils along public roadways and this year they will plant thousands of daffodils in front of the stone wall along Elmwood Road at Onatru Farm, Lewisboro Hamlet. You can help support the Golden Roads program, and help beatify our town roads. Just ask any of the Lewisboro Garden Club folks

On this weekend we ask everyone to have a little patience and to follow the directions of the folks helping you to park so everyone can enjoy their time at the Nursery.
.
One last thought. Thinking about renewable energy? Ever wonder how Solar panels work and if it’s worth getting your house “off the grid” and suppling your own electricity while selling the excess power back to your local electric provider? Well on Saturday, May 22nd, Gossett Brothers Nursery will have someone at the Farmers market to talk to you about that. Check out the Gossett Web page or Gossett Facebook page during the week for more information.

Happy Mothers Day!!!!

Neither wind, nor rain, nor crazy April weather……..

I think our vendors must of worked for the post office in a past life, because no matter what kind of wild weather April brings, they always get here and get the job done. We started off the month with a bang, amazing sunny skies and warm days, but then reality set back in and last Saturday we were blown around and just barely warm. This Saturday looks like its goona be a wet, cool one, but not to worry, our ‘cold-hardened” farmers have some specials for you, to help entice you to come and play in the rain.

Picklelicious is putting there Half Sour Pickles on sale for $5.00 a quart, reg. price $7.00.

Cascade Mountain is happy to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day 2010 with a newly released batch of California Certified Organic Olive Oil….this oil of a Spanish origin and is grown, crushed and packed on one 1800 acre parcel in the Upper Sacramento Valley, it has a tremendous fruity nose,never bitter and very pleasing as a finish oil The special this week only is $11.00 for 375 mll and $19.00 for the 750s…so enjoy and decrease your dependancy on foreign oil!!!

Madera Farms is bringing some asparagus, fresh (green) garlic stalks, maybe some rhubarb, sorrel along with there usual fantastic greens. Finally Wave Hill Breads will have lots and lots of “Just Crusts” chips, always a crowd favorite.

We also have a Local Artisan this Saturday. Dorothy Jagodzinski,  who is the talent behind “Creative Crafts by Dorothy”,   is sharing that talent by bringing her handmade  Aprons, Table Runners, Tote Bags, Jewlery and more to the Market.
