Russellville Community Market:  Infrastructure Updates and a couple of problems


Hey all,

I just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that our software was upgraded over the weekend, and inevitably there may have been some problems.

Before today you may have noticed a few missing images on the website, but this should be resolved by now.

Also, if you use Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), the ‘Featured Items’ and ’What’s New’ carousels are unfortunately disabled currently because of some internal problems with the software compatibility. Other browers (i.e., Chrome, Firefox) should be unaffected.

None of this should scare anyone, everything is still running smoothly and will continue to do so! Just a heads up if some things look different!

Thanks for reading everyone, and thanks for your support of RCM!

Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  Order Confirmation emails


Hi Everyone,

Last Thursday our market website was migrated to a new server and some system upgrades were made. There were a few glitches and a major one was the email confirmation configuration. If you placed an order on Friday to Sat morning you probably did not get an email confirmation with your total. You can double check and get your total by going to Your Account and clicking Your Order History. I will have the packing list that shows orders and totals on the table tomorrow at pick up as well.

Some other system glitches were missing images, problems scrolling and general sluggishness when viewing the site using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. Our developer has fixed all these problems and they should no longer be an issue. If you notice anything else please let me know.

Thank you so much for your support!
Nora

Superior Seasons:  Weblog Entry


Good Day!

Reminder! Ordering is still open, CLICK HERE, until Monday at 5pm for Wednesday’s pickup! After 5 we update to start the next order cycle for Saturday!

Work in the Fields
Farmers are still busy finishing harvesting carrots, kale, and other frost tolerant crops. Minding the storage of potatoes, squash, etc to supply to markets for the winter. Preparing fields for next spring by lightly working or plowing the land or making raised beds to help get planting done in our short spring. Finally finishing a myriad of projects that abandoned during the chaos of summer weeding and harvests. Planning for next year!

Good Growing

Check out one of our new farms – *Crones Cradle

Crones Cradle Conserve is a 756 acre, privately-owned, ecological preserve and education center located in Marion County, thirty-five miles southeast of Gainesville, an area of increasing sprawl and development. Sustainability is the underlying theme of all the Conserve’s endeavors. The Conserve seeks to retain as much as possible the existing flora and fauna in its natural state within Conserve boundaries. Less than 100 acres are being used for human purposes. The ultimate priority of the Conserve is protecting and appreciating the earth before carrying out any of its “people-related” ventures. This approach is the only way to achieve sustainability for farming, for the local community and for the planet, emphasizes Jeri Baldwin, co-founder with Deborah Light of Sag Harbor, New York of the Conserve

We are starting to ramp up business as the growing season slowly picks up from the wet summer and fall that delayed planting for farmers.

So keep your eyes peeled for new items popping up on the website!

We are all right now volunteering for the buying club – no one is on salary currently and everyone is pulling together to make purchases because of the desire to build a food system we can trust and because of a common belief that healthy food is right!

So if you have time and or professional skills, ideas, please don’t hesitate to join in.

Just email a resume and interest to BHbuyingclub@gmail.com

Come out and check out the new space across the street from Ella’s Folk Art Cafe!
