URBAN HOME-STAND

Thank you for coming up and making our first (of hopefully many) “Homestand’s” a positive and successful event (estimated nearly 200 dropped in throughout the day).    Also a big thank you to those who came bearing homemade gifts and complimentary comments.   We appreciate your support!

Like to acknowledge all those who came as far as Redlands, Temecula, Palos Verdes and other surrounding cities!

Justin demos on how to make soil blocks

We know at times it got pretty hectic and swamped to where we couldn’t personally attend to everyone and your lists of questions.  We were so busy, we even didn’t around to doing some of the demo’s/skill share we had planned (canning, chickens, etc)!  Thank you for your understanding & patience as we know many of you wanted to hang around for longer.

Unfortunately, we were so busy (& frazzled at times, running to and fro) we didn’t get a chance to snap photos of the even nor did we get around to bringing out the rose petal lemonade – ack!   Jordanne’s Chocolate Cake made with ducks eggs sold by the slice was a big hit!   So was the bread, salad and preserves.

Should we do it again NEXT month?  What can we do better?   In fact, we are already working on a list of improvements!  I for one would like to see more foods – perhaps next time we could put a couple tables out with chair?   Ideas, ideas, ideas.

Remember our “Front Porch Farm Stand” is open daily Sun-Fri (10 am – 6 pm) so you can pick up that salad or bread you didn’t get a chance to buy at the stand yesterday.

Thank you for supporting local foods and farms.

    I’m so happy for you. Someday, I’ll come by again. But it is a very long drive from UT or WA. You inspire me.

    I wish I could have been there but it’s a really long drive from Nebraska. Maybe some day I’ll be close enough to drop by and visit the front porch farm stand. The concept really intrigues me.

    We are just starting to get consistant 40s for temperatures and a promise of near 60 before the week is over. That will definitely make the snow disappear. We’ve had snow on the ground since Christmas and in my humble opinion it’s time for it to be gone and spring to be here.

    Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day.

    It was a great day. We stopped by and it was pretty busy! Bought some soap, which is awesome, some seeds, marmalade,(which we haven’t tried yet)and some of the chocolate cake-delicious! I definitely think it would be great to do it again next month and I like the idea of tables and food. It’d be nice to network with like minded individuals. I would love to come to a workshop on a specific subject – like canning or chickens. Have you ever thought of having one just by itself?
