Spring May arrive this weekend…or May-be not.

Have you ever seen a unsettled month like this May? From bone chilling nights and gusty winds that would bring back bad memories to both Dorothy and Toto, to soaking rains that would make Ark building a worth while hobby, May has been a tough month on both us and the plant life here at the Nursery.
But as cantankerous as Mother Nature can be, I think she May smile on us this Saturday and let a little sun shine on the Market. Temperatures are going to be in the upper 60’s on Saturday and it will be a bit breezey. While the Merry Month of May May-be a bit fickle, the vendors at the Farmers Market are rock solid, they are here every week to bring you the best in local, organic farm-fresh food.  Along with our hearty farmers, this week at the Market we have another local artisan and a FREE garden class. Read on for the details.

Local Artisan – Kathryn Rothfeld

Kathy Rothfeld started Kasaro Designs five years ago after learning the craft of fine jewelry design while working for a distinguished jeweler. Her designs have been featured in fine jewelry shops from Larchmont to Mt. Kisco.  She personally sources unique elements, and often applies proprietary processes, adding subtle hues and creating distinctive finishes.  Among the elements in Kasaro Designs jewelry are semi-precious stones, Swarovski Crystal Beads, cloisonne, freshwater pearls, and sterling silver, vermeil, and gold-filled components.
