  • The Southbridge Farmers Market will “pop-up” in between monthly Youth Farm Stand days, on Saturdays from 12-2pm, beginning Saturday, June 11th.  The market will be located at the Community Garden (406 S. Heald Street, Wilmington). This market is managed by community members, featuring produce grown by community members, offering organically-grown produce at excellent prices, with all proceeds being returned to the community at the end of the season.

Delaware Citizens’ Cannabis Lobby Day 17
Jun 7 all-day

Join Delaware CAN June 7th to help us legalize cannabis for all adults 21 and older. We only have until June 30th until the legislative session ends and won’t reconvene until January 2019. We need your help NOW! Regardless of how many times you’ve spoken with your elected official, we need you to stand in solidarity with us June 7th at Legislative Hall. Citizen lobbying is a proven and effective way to convince legislators to act. There are no voter initiatives in Delaware and the only way to legalize cannabis will be through an act of the Legislature. Here is what you can do to help Legalize Cannabis in Delaware in 2018. 1) Register for Citizens’ Cannabis Lobby Day 17 delawarecannabis.org/lobby 2) Make an appointment with your legislators. Use this example to help you: “Hello, My name is ____; I will be attending a lobby day Thursday, June 7th, and I would like to set up an appointment to speak to my Representative/ Senator or their aide please”. (We have experienced team leaders to help you with talking points, and effective citizen lobbying techniques so you have an idea of what to expect if you have never lobbied before. Delaware has no voter initiative (referendum process), so directly engaging our local Representatives & Senators is the ONLY way the law will change. Don’t know who your legislator is? Look it up here: https:// legis.delaware.gov/, or Contact Us at info@delawarecannabis.org) Please send us an email at volunteer@delawarecannabis.org or text (302) 404-4208 with your appointment time so we can add it to our schedule. Those that preregister will receive a complementary, solidarity name tag the day of the event. 3) Spread the word, get others signed up! (CO, WA, OR, AK, CA, MA, ME, NV, VT & DC legalized cannabis with the hard work of citizens like you; we need people actively helping us engage our legislators to change the law. Share our website (delawarecannabis.org) & Facebook page.) 4) Meet us in the Lobby of Legislative Hall on June 7th, at 12:30pm. (Talking points will be provided, but feel free to prepare your own personal message, as well.) PLEASE DRESS PROFESSIONALLY. 5) Donate to Delaware CAN to fund events like Lobby Day and our other efforts to legalize cannabis in Delaware in 2018. https:// delawarecannabisadvocacynetwork.wildapricot.org/ Donate Even if you’ve attended a lobby day before; even if your legislators have taken a position one way or the other; it’s critical that you join with other legalization advocates on June 7th at Legislative Hall to stand in solidarity for sensible cannabis policy. Let’s make 2018 the year that Delaware becomes the first state to legalize cannabis through the legislative process. Networking Happy Hour To Follow.
