Bike to the Market
Date: Tuesday June 12
Friends of Lexington Bikeways and Ride Studio Cafe (Lexington's own bike store) will host monthly bike corrals during the entire Farmers' Market season.  The first 40 cyclists to check in with our bike valets (on 6/12) will receive a $2 gift coupon to the Lexington Farmers' Market to be used as cash.  We encourage you to talk with FoLB members about getting involved in their education and stewardship programs.  Look for the FoLB banner, park your bike and get your coupon!

Dream Big-Read!
Date: Tuesday, June 26

Cary Memorial Library and The Lexington Farmers' Market celebrate the 2012 summer reading theme of Dream BIG, Read! with a workshop at the Lexington Farmers' market from 4:00-5:00.  Kids entering grades 3-5 (and their parents) are invited to Dream Big about what they could grow in their gardens and are asked to think about how the wildlife around them is beneficial to their gardens.

Come meet local wildlife from Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary and learn the wonderful habits and needs of our wild neighbors. Why are they important to our gardens?  Then let's walk the market and meet the farmers that grow our food.  Each child will be given a $2 coupon to be spent at the market as cash to help buy a plant to put in their own garden at home!

This event is free, funded by the friends of Cary Library.  Online registration will begin on Monday June 18, at 7:00 p.m., or by telephone registration to begin at 7:30 p.m. (781-862-6288, ext. 170)
