Our Farmers Market Friends

In order to provide a free lunch during the Do It Yourself Festival, the Free Skool reached out to farmers at the Ypsilanti Farmers market for donations. Several farmers were kind enough to donate produce to us for the event.  Everything was excellent and we can’t thank them enough!  The following week we went back to the market and found out a little information about these farms to share with you all.
