The Coppell Farmers’ Market resumes weekly markets every Saturday, beginning April 6, from 8 a.m. to noon. The city of Coppell teaches folks to grow their own food in the Adopt–a–Plot program. Individuals, families and organizations can adopt a raised garden bed (when available) to grow vegetables and fruits for donation to the Metrocrest Social Services food pantry. Gardeners can also take produce from their plot for personal use, as well. If a garden bed is not available, volunteering at the garden is recommended until one is available.
Hard-to-find, organic and unique perennials, herbs, berry plants, vegetables and other selections grown in Coppell will be for sale at the EcoCoppell Earthfest. Funds help support the Coppell Community Garden that donates thousands of pounds of organically grown produce for the food bank at Metrocrest Service Center.
