Help give our local farmers a boost!

October 2, 2013 in Boulder Events, Community News

The September floods submerged so many farms, which are the backbone of the Front Range’s effervescent restaurant scene. In Boulder County, farmers lost entire crops, and rushing waters tore away precious topsoil. Imagine the heartache: a year’s worth of toil, fields thick with tomatoes and eggplants, lined with kale and spinach, sprouting vines speckled with winter squash and pumpkins — all of it down the drain. Help our local farmers by attending these events!

 

Events:

Oct. 5th and 6th – Check out Cider Days in Lakewood

Oct 8th. – Attend “Provence of Lyons” flood relief benefit at Mateo restaurant in Boulder

Hit the farmers markets. Buy stuff — there’s a good chance your own gardens were wrecked by the waters anyway. You don’t want to miss out on the small window we get every year to haul home stuff straight from the farm.

State of the union!

The Boulder market is getting very strong again. What a great place to live! With our Hiking trails, open space, shopping and restaurants we are blessed.  The University, Naropa and other educational events like the World Affairs Conference keep us vibrant and stimulated. All of this feeds into our real estate market making it one of the best re-sale markets in the world.  We are seeing great activity in luxury properties, including downtown loft living and single family luxury homes.   There have been cases of multible offers in this areana as well as more modest family homes.
The advertising sector, government labs, Google, the universty and the long awaited arrival of Conoco Phillips will all help the Real Estate Market flourish. We at Walnut Realty have excellent tools to help with home search and great marketing skills to sell your property.
