McLean Farmers Market in Full Summer Bloom - Virginia Connection Newspapers

He hails from a family of farmers from Egypt. “I knew everything about taking care of plants,” said Sharkawi. “When I graduated from the Alexandria agricultural college, I added scientific knowledge to my experience. That helped me a lot because agriculture is not traditional anymore. It's built on science. I attended a lot of conferences, learned from magazines. I was one of the first who started greenhouses in the US on the farm.” Sharkawi has three daughters. From a young age, they helped him, but later they went their separate ways. “The eldest daughter is a chemical specialist. She works for the Army. My middle daughter is an engineer. She builds rockets. The youngest is a teacher. So, now I am doing all things by myself. I am growing, cooking, driving, and selling. I miss them very much.. Valentine Miller, the owner of the Valentine’s Bakery&Meats, talked about his large family all working at the farm. “My wife and I, my son and daughter, son-in-law and my nephew. I would say it's mostly our family. Only one girl helps with the bakery.” His truck is decorated with farm animals. His spot is the biggest at the market and one of the most popular. He handles all sales himself. “It’s a lot of work. But we are fine. We've been up here in this area in Northern Virginia for 20 years already.” Four years ago, Andrea Young and her husband Dandy swapped their office work for the farm. Their 250-acre Hidden Creek Farm from Fauquier County is now successful and sustainable. Apart from high quality meat and eggs, the farm is also known for its wild honey as well as a large selection of homemade jams and baked goods. Live music adds to any farmers market a festival vibe. The guitarist and singer Steve Smith plays old school blues every Friday. He contributes greatly to the relaxing atmosphere of the Farmers Market. NEXT WEEK is going to be special because of the National Farmers Market Week. This event, with cooking demonstrations, games, kids’ activities, and raffles for gift baskets is running Aug. 9 at the Mclean Farmers market from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon.

Grant Lake Treated for Flowering Rush | Local News - Voice Of Alexandria

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — Grant Lake in Douglas County was treated August 8 for an aquatic invasive species (AIS) called flowering rush. Douglas County AIS Prevention Coordinator Justin Swart, and Mark Ranweiler with the Department of Natural Resources accompanied workers from an aquatic plant and algae control company as they applied an herbicide to reduce the population of flowering rush.The DNR had previously removed some flowering rush plants in the lake by hand. It was discovered in mid-July by a retired DNR official.“We are fortunate that this officer spotted the flowering rush in its earliest stages, said AIS Prevention Coordinator Justin Swart. Treating it now should prevent it from spreading in Grant Lake and potentially to other lakes in the county.”Flowering rush looks similar to bulrush but it has a cluster of pink flowers on top. There is also a submerged form that does not produce flowers. Left untreated, it can grow up to four feet and overtake natural habitat, crowd out nativ...

F.C. Florist Sends Bouquets to Congresswomen Targeted by Trump - Falls Church News Press

In response to in-fighting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and four freshmen Democratic congresswomen — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — Trump chose to chime in with a tweet, asking “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?” That line in particular struck a racial connotation with Americans who watched the verbal barbs being traded, especially ones who are a part of the country’s immigrant community. Advertisements Rabinovich decided to lend some scented support to the congresswomen after seeing customers send floral arrangements to Pelosi as well as, as she put it, “an assistant for a well-known female singer” deliver some to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. So the Russian refugee who immigrated to the U.S. when she was six years old sent custom arrangements to each of the congresswomens’ offices in D.C. as an act purely motivated by human decency. “If somebody wants to withhold their support of a small business because they think it’s a political move then that’s ridiculous,” Rabinovich said, who mentioned that she hasn’t received a response from any of the congresswomen as of yet. “I don’t think anyone would fault me for doing something nice for someone. Just because I sent flowers to people in the Democratic party doesn’t mean I did anything negative to anyone in the Republican party.” Rabinovich’s gesture landed her press coverage in other outlets, including American University’s WAMU, an interview on the Thom Hartmann Show a...

Slow Flowers Summit coming to St. Paul to spread the word about local blooms - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Seven years ago, when Emma and Alexia Kelsey opened their floral business, Kindred Blooms, they didn’t think much about where the flowers they worked with came from or what the blooms had been sprayed with. Then Alexia got pregnant. The sisters did some research and were shocked at what they found out, Emma said. They decided to look for chemical-free plant material and to buy as much locally as possible.

Doctors said she wouldn’t live to her first birthday. She just went to prom with two dates. - The Washington Post

Shepherd, a 21-year-old with a genetic disorder called partial trisomy 13, poses with her prom dates in Waterford, Ontario, on June 1. (Courtesy of Alex Daiken) Allie Caren Video editor focusing on breaking news and viral content June 13 Gabby Horner-Shepherd wasn’t expected to live to see her first birthday. She was born with the genetic disorder partial trisomy 13, and doctors said that if she did make it through her first year, she would likely fall into a vegetative state soon after. But 21 years later, Gabby is still here. Because of her disability, Gabby has the motor skills and cognitive understanding of an 18-to-24-month-old, her mother said. Still, Gabby enjoys horseback riding, paddle boarding and zip-lining. And she’s a big fan of Ed Sheeran. Gabby is in her final year of high school near the family’s home in Port Dover, Ontario. Her mother said she is part of a special education classroom, allowing her to attend the school until age 21. Nearing the end of her high school career, Shannon Horner-Shepherd felt that there was one final rite of passage her daughter should experience: prom. “She loves music, and she...

Flower power: Santa Rita students thank teachers, staff with 108 colorful handmade bouquets - Los Altos Town Crier

Zoe Morgan/Town Crier Santa Rita School sixth-grader Alexandra Platon counts the bouquets parent volunteers made for teachers and staff as part of the school’s Flower Day. In total, Platon counted 108. Classic red roses, deep pink tulips, bright yellow sunflowers and pale lavender hydrangeas were among the thousands of flowers arranged in more than 100 handmade bouquets outside Santa Rita School May 14. Parent volunteers spent the morning creating the bouquets out of flowers parents and students donated. The flower arrangements were then given to teachers and other school employees as part of Santa Rita’s staff appreciation week celebration. “Who doesn’t like getting flowers? It totally brightens your day, brightens your classroom,” said Jessica Gowdy, who launched the Flower Day event in 2014. “And kids can enjoy it as much as the teachers can enjoy it.” Gowdy originally came up with the idea when she was teaching fourth-grade at Oak Knoll School in Menlo Park, which had an annual Flower Day. “I thought, it’s such a great idea,” Gowd...
