What’s Happening at TOL?
Seeds of Hope Farmers’ Market
Thursdays, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Come to the front parking lot of Temple on Thursdays from 8 a.m. to noon to get fresh, local produce for all your summer meals. Last year we were the second highest grossing Seeds of Hope venue! Let’s do it again!
