Inspiration for Front Yard Farm Stands
While visiting Saltspring Island in BC, Canada in August 2013, I was impressed with these individual family farm or neighborhood farm stands in front of residences and thought how perfect these farm stands would be in our communities to share the bounty of our backyard and front gardens and coops! These stands were very simple to construct, and they often used coolers with re-usable ice containers and simply sold or shared the bounty of eggs, and fresh vegetables, seeds, cookies, lemonade, etc and sometimes prepared cooked goods with those passing by. These farms stands were located all over the island. Hopefully these pictures here will inspire a new set of neighborhood and community farms on our coop tour!
