2018 is here!

We all are super excited to be done with the holiday season. I'm sure a lot of you are wondering just what to do with yourselves now that all the shopping, cookie eating and general reverie is over and done with. Well we just wanted to take a moment of how From The Garden can help you in 2018 with whatever your new years resolutions call for. 

1: Eat Healthier - Honey is a great alternative to the typical sweeteners that you come across when making some of your favorite dishes. It also has a ton of health benefits including preventing allergies come spring time. There's no better time to start preparing for seasonal allergies than now. Another helpful way that honey can make a healthier "You" in 2018 is by combining apple cider vinnegar, honey and warm water once a day. Some of the health benefits include lowering of cholesterol, acne and blood sugar. In addition From The Garden has plenty of other products in our store that are a healthy alternative to the typical winter foods that you may be overstuffed with come spring time when you're wondering what happened to that resolution you made back in January

 

2: Be More Mindful - One of the great things about shopping at From The Garden is no matter what you get from us, you're shopping local. Shopping local is a great way to focus on your community and make for a more mindful presence in your day to day life. Between our locally made candles, soaps, sauces, coffee, spices and more, whenever you shop at From The Garden, you are supporting a local small business entrepreneur and making for a stronger more vibrant community. 

 

3: Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone - We love meeting new customers who come in and say "I've driven past this place a zillion times and finally decided to see for myself." It truly warms our heart to hear that sheer curiosity gets people coming down our driveway, and if you find yourself this year saying "I want to do more things I don't normally do" then we are more than happy to oblige. We know we're a bit off the beaten path and frankly we like it that way. We love the look of wonder some of our customers get in their face when they come through the door. So get off the beaten path, come to our shop and see where curiosity in 2018 can take you. 

We're all so happy to be entering a New Year of new possibilities, and we hope to see you all soon. 

The 2017 Holiday Bazaar is on!

We are very excited to announce our 5th annual Holiday Bazaar! It's become an annual tradition where we open our doors to some of our favorite craft vendors and artisan food makers from around the area to showcase all the great stuff that our area has to offer. We're going to be featuring plenty of familiar faces and some new additions that we'll be mentioning as the days and weeks unfold. Obviously, now that fall is just starting to behave like fall, it seems a bit early to be talking Christmas but we wanted to let all of our friends know nice and early so that they can plan accordingly and not miss out on all the fun.

From the Garden has been closed in the wake of the tragic loss of Patty.

From the entire From the Garden family, thank you for your support and patience with us during this difficult time. We hope to see you soon.

Patty <

It seems impossible to find any words, let alone the right words, to address the incomprehensible loss of our beloved “honey lady,” Patty Madzin. But, somehow, so many of you have found the right words. We sincerely appreciate each and every message on our website, Facebook post, and phone call. Thank you for sharing your love, sympathies, and memories. Patty holds a very dear place in the hearts of so many of us. It was impossible not to feel special in her presence. It was impossible not to be positively affected by her warmth, kindness, sincerity, and generosity. And it is the most impossible to imagine a world in which she is simply no longer here.

From the Garden is closed for now, but we intend to reopen after the 4th of July. We will update our social media and website with an exact opening date soon. We appreciate your positive thoughts, prayers, patience, and respect for our privacy while we try to process this very difficult loss.

As our friend Holly worded it so perfectly, Patty “was as bright and beautiful as the flowers she so loved, she was busier than the busiest of bees and sweeter than the sweetest honey. She will be missed immensely, remembered fondly and loved always.”
