A Farmgirl believes in the strong arms of friendship, community and the just plain fun of being together. A Farmgirl takes joy in the quiet satisfaction of making things with her own hands. She exudes kindness, grace, humility, gentleness, patience and generosity, and loves the simple pleasures in life. She is loyal and caring, especially when it comes to her family, friends and community. She gives generously of her time and talents. Farmgirls love to get together to share their ideas.
I want to
share an exciting new family venture of the Stephens family in North
Carolina. Some of you may remember Cindy Stephens as one of the
original Georgia Farmgirls from way back in 2009. Her husband Danny is a
very talented musician and also a video/production expert. They have four
children who are following in their very talented footsteps with music and
their love for family and God. Here is a link to their new
venture Pop Scripture Songs which encourages children (of all ages) to learn
scripture via music. They are doing concerts in our area and I will do my
best to post on our Georgia Farmgirls website the dates, times and
locations. They also have Pop Scripture Songs merchandise available for
purchase. You can also follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/popscripturesongs.

Saturday, March 10, 2010 Farmgirl Spirit Meeting. When was the last time you set aside a Saturday morning just for you?Got dressed up in you “Farmgirl finest”, left the kids and hubby at home and chugged on over to “sit a spell” with your favorite “sistas”. Ya reckon it’s been a while, or maybe never?Well tomorrow’s your golden opportunity to join the Georgia Farmgirls as we celebrate our “Farmgirl Spirit” and the MaryJanes Farmgirl Sisterhood that brought us all together..Come on over at 10:30am to the Henhouse (6985 Bannister Road, Cumming, Ga.) as we enjoy good food, great fellowship and a renewing of the passion that inspires us to all be better to ourselves, our families, our environment and our community.
Local author and Georgia Farmgirl, Barbara Roberts, will be autographing her recently published recipe book “Alive Health – Healthy Eating on the Run” on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at Cover to Cover Used Books from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Cover to Cover is located at 43 Grant Road, # E, Dawsonville, Georgia 30534. Grant Road is off GA 400 north of Hwy 53 and the Kroger shopping center, their phone number is 706.265.3772 if you need directions.
Barbara’s book is a “recipe book” versus a “cook book” because most of the foods she uses are raw, and therefore quite interesting. She will have samples of some of her foods, such as zucchini brownies and oatmeal pumpkin bread, for you to try out on that day. All of her recipes are wheat-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and artificial sweetener-free and therefore guilt-free!
She has strived to find tasty alternatives to the foods that most of America eats, including pizza, muffins, cakes, pies and more. Her food is great for everyone, but especially for people with Celiac disease and diabetes.
Barbara began playing in the dirt, and the kitchen, after taking a Raw Foods course in the year 2000. Adopting the principles she learned there improved her health, and ultimately, her quality of life. The book is the culmination of her journey to optimal health.
Barbara has been preaching the health benefits of raw foods to family and friends whenever possible. (Coincidentally, she is an ordained minister and officiates at weddings frequently, so sharing messages with people comes naturally.)
She has become a dedicated locavore, finding sources for locally grown grass-fed, grass-finished beef , Heritage pork, free-range eggs and fresh milk. She also grows her own food and became a Master Gardener in 2011.
Perhaps most importantly, in the first part of the book, Barbara shares the reasoning behind why eating raw foods is so much better for you. She also reveals surprising facts about the foods most people eat regularly. Come inside the book and keep an open mind while visualizing the healthier person you will be when you learn to love food in a new way.
As a group we explored what household cleaning products are considered "green" and what we are personally doing to promote a healthier lifestyle, conserve spending in this tight economy and teach our young folks about a simpler lifestyle. We referenced web sites, books, and each other's personal experiences. Handouts included the "Cleaning Up - Going Green" Merit Badge instructions and product recipes. Samples of Green cleaning products made by our members were displayed.
