HEY THIS IS ASHLEY FROM THE BUSINESS GROUP AND I'M GIVING A SHOUT OUT TO EVERYONE IN THE BUSINESS GROUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week in the business we started looking for options for are new product SONA SALSA.
We have to find a place to get a UPC code and find a place to get the nutrition facts to go on the back of the product.
We have split up to start our EACH ONE TEACH ONE projects_ this is a method used to make ordinary people experts on particular subject, such as "Customer Service and How to display your products."
I am looking up local crops that are available in the fall , spring and winter seasons so that we can produce our products more often during the year.
Soon Growing Green is starting its school year program and we are hiring about 24-25 youth to work.
We are going on a camping trip on the 22ND - 23rd of August to a camp ground in Franklinville, New York. we'll let you know how that turns out in a later blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is Rodzilla (aka Rodney) telling people about our Be Vocal Eat Local Community Cook Out. We passed out organic Green Beans and invited people for a night of fresh local food, dynamite music and one of the best youth skits around!!!

Are those hearts on Zilla's hat???

Hey people. We had a great last week. We had our "Be Vocal Eat Local" cook-out where almost three hundred people showed up we held a skit about the benefits of eating healthy instead of picking up a burger at the nearest fast food spot.
