The Tuscola Garden Club has an upcoming program, to be presented by Tina Masciarelli, the project coordinator for Buy Haywood, that the public won’t want to miss.

Hard-working regional farmers, fresh mountain air and excellent soils guarantee the availability of a diverse selection of local goods that are fresh and of excellent quality. With more than 700 farms represented in Haywood and nearby counties, residents have access to many fresh farm products including produce, jams and jellies, meats, eggs, dairy products and farm trout. And for yards and gardens, what could be better than to plant locally grown and acclimated trees, shrubs and flowers?

Buy Haywood is a nonprofit organization that supports local farmers with projects and promotions that raise awareness of locally grown items available to Haywood community consumers. Come find out how to access these great resources at grocers, markets, greenhouses, restaurants and directly from many farms.

The meeting will be at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17 at the Bethea Welcome Center at Lake Junaluska. We can eat fresher, healthier food while supporting and sustaining local farmers. Visitors are welcome. For more information, call 452-7176.
