Family Nutrition Program

Family Nutrition Program is offered through the Virginia Cooperative Extension in order to help limited-resource families and youth make healthier, smarter food choices that will promote optimal health and growth.

Over the summer, a Farmers Market Intern will be at the farmers market educating the community about nutrition and doing cooking demonstrations. This is aimed to help the community gain confidence in the kitchen and learn how easy and delicious meals can be when made with produce from the farmers market.

Birdhouse Farmers Market Presents Kids Club

Birdhouse Market is excited to announce that Kids Club will be starting June 20 for children ages 3 to 10.  Kids Club provides fun and free activities that inspire children to eat wholesome food and learn more about where their food comes from.  Our theme this year is, There's a Rainbow at the Market.  To participate each week, always start at the Kids Club booth.  Children can make crafts, meet farm animals, talk to farmers about their work, listen to stories, and earn fun prizes along the way.  We'd like to thank Inga Goodwin from Shiloh's Micros and Patty Parks, our librarian, for hosting this awesome program.

Birdhouse Pop Up Market Featuring House Of Lukaya

Lucretia Jones is a mixed media artisan, wise woman herbalist, aspiring doula, cupid’s sweetheart, and new mama to the moon. She was born near the Atlantic Ocean in Portsmouth and raised in the swampy tree-filled suburbs just south of Richmond, VA. It is her pleasure to share what she’s been learning about plant medicine for the past 16 years, joyfully connecting people with the plants living right outside their doors. The Wise Woman Tradition encourages each of us (women and men) to see the ally in every ailment and challenge and to trust in our own body’s innate wisdom and wholeness. In addition to simple ritual, this tradition calls on whole foods and common plants (often called weeds) rather than their synthetic counterparts. She is the creator and artisan of plant-based body care, incense, and herbal medicine line House of Lukaya.  For more information about House of Lukaya visit houseoflukaya.com and  https://www.instagram.com/houseoflukaya
