New Seedfolk Store Hours:  Tues-Fri, 1:30 -  6 p.m.   The Seedfolk Store will not be open on Saturdays during the summer as work shifts toward managing "Seedfolk City Farms" at 929 So. Plymouth (next to the Gandhi Institute) and the E. Main St. Greenhouse location (2271 E. Main St.).

The 9 youth who have been employed for 6 months and working at these location will have a Closing Ceremony on Fri. 6/13 from 4-7 p.m. at The Seedfolk Store.

Preparations are now being made to employ 12 youth through RochesterWorks! and in partnership with the Center for Youth.  We have secured funding to continue to employ 2 current youth over the summer in addition to the new team of 12.  Visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/seedfolkstore.

I'm kind of relieved that Wednesday's weather forecast is for 45 degrees.  That will make it easier for folks to decide to come inside to attend Wednesday's workshop at The Gandhi House.  Hope to see lots of you there!
