Grow Benzie, in its infancy still, it was established in 2009 by some really cool people. Grow Benzie purchased that building with the greenhouses on 115 between Benzonia and Frankfort. It’s a non-profit organization and they are growing vegetables.
If I remember correctly, their mission is to get everyone into the healthy foods fresh from the fields instead of all the convenience foods most of us consume today.
This is a great idea and I am supporting it not with volunteering [yet]; I am shopping at their Wednesday market. The first market was held 2 days ago. It was very small but I saw a “steady stream” of customers.
