Our Second Saturday this month will be held Saturday, May 11, 2019!
Second Saturdays at Deer Creek Farm Garden Market in Rocklin, a non-profit organization by Compassion Planet, supports the needs of aged-out foster and at-risk young adults.
DCF Garden Market offers opportunities to purchase farm fresh and pesticide-free produce throughout the growing seasons.
This is a community event where we garden (pull weeds, trim, plant or whatever necessary) to support a great garden and a great cause.
