Since 2010 it has been Grow Benzie’s mission to bring people together over healthful foods and life skills. Not only have they accomplished their mission, but they have gone above and beyond for the people of their community. Providing many opportunities for people to make beneficial choices, Grow Benzie offers a farmer’s market, food truck, educational workshops, gardening classes, culinary demonstrations and so much more. They connect with the community by accepting WIC Pro...ject Fresh, Senior Project Fresh, Double Up Food Bucks and a local fruit and vegetable prescription program. Grow Benzie is much more than just a farmer’s market, it’s a destination to enjoy with friends and family of all ages. This summer they have many things on their event calendar including carriage rides, herb walks, tractor day, and a fiber spinners day planned. Along with events, they plan to offer hands-on classes such as kombucha making, asparagus pickling, strawberry jam making, making of culinary vinegars, permaculture gardening, herbs for healing, tomato canning, and edible and medicinal plant landscaping. Grow Benzie is the epitome of connecting the community with the experience of farming and those who grow food. If you haven’t visited their market it is an absolute must for this summer.
