Liberty Wells garden grows fruit, veggies and community 31.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A community garden is where neighbors get together to plant fruits and vegetables ­— and grow a community.

The Hidden Poverty in Marijuana’s Black Market 29.8.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
This story comes to us from Capital & Main and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project. Sign up for email alerts from Capital & Main. Rural Trinity County is home to 13,500 people in Northern California and marijuana production is rampant there. Along with Humboldt and Mendocino counties, Trinity comprises California’s “Emerald Triangle,” a region known for its prolific marijuana farming. Hayfork is Trinity County’s second largest town, and an area of concentrated production. Trinity has been subject to a series of natural resource economic booms: In the eras before marijuana, both the gold and timber industries thrived in its rugged expanse of mountains. Hayfork in particular was singularly tied to those economies. When the timber business went bust in the early 1990s, Hayfork’s economy tanked. The town, once home to seven timber mills, lost its final mill in 1996, and overnight 160 jobs were lost. Since then, the economy has failed to stabilize. In the wake of the timber industry’s collapse, many ...

Steamboat Springs Farmers Market is flourishing 26.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Stone-ground heirloom chocolate, bear fat soap and a real garden you can grow inside your house are all being made or sold by local vendors at the Steamboat Springs Farmers Market this year, which is entering its final month of operation for the summer. Not surprisingly, MainStreet Steamboat, the nonprofit group that runs the farmers market, has a little trouble getting actual farmers into this part of the Northwest Colorado Rocky Mountains. What: Steamboat Springs Farmers Market When: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., every Saturday through Sept. 24 Where: Intersection of Seventh and Yampa streets MainStreet Steamboat Manager Lisa Popovich said they beef up the farmers market with regional farmers and also welcome craft vendors.   “We have a very limited selling season and growing season so we concentrate on meat, and a lot of things like salsa and baked goods,” Popovich said.
