About to be getting my gardening on! A small investment makes for fresh fruit and veggies one day. Avocados take a couple of years to bear fruit, but it is going to be worth the effort! #thehungryorc#greenthumb#gardengrown
#NationalWomensMonth. Throughout the entire month #FreshFarmMarkets will spotlight many of the women seen at the markets each week. Their stories are as diverse as the faces you’ll find behind the displays of fruit, veggies and baked goods. As we share their stories, we hope you come to know them better.
Meet farmer Jarrah Cernas. She and her husband Agustin started @chicanosol in 2009, after having spent many years farming on other organic farms together. Since Jarrah is American and Agustin is Mexican, they chose the name of their farm to honor both of their heritages. Over the years, the farm and their family grew, and Chicano Sol now sells at the Downtown Silver Spring market, the Dupont Market, to their local cooperative, and through a small CSA. Jarrah is a farmer, businesswoman, wife and mother — she is a force. #badasswomen#womenfarmer#iamwomanheremeroar
