Farmers and gardeners in the valley and beyond are about ready to spring out of their winter dormancy and start planting. Seed packets are flying furiously through the mail, buckets of potting soil are being hauled inside to thaw, and those first tentative seeds are emerging from the flats behind woodstoves and under grow lights. Soon every south-facing window will be lined with tender plants basking in the sun and cheering on the melting of the snow.
The Hazelton Farmers’ Market is set to reemerge for the new season at the Skeena Ice Arena on the first weekend in May. New vendors are always welcome.
Grow it, Make it, or Bake it, and bring it to the market!
