A local gardener has taken her hobby and gone into business. Louise Zafirro of Pella started selling her homegrown, certified organic produce at the Pella Farmer’s market this year. She says she was nervous about the endeavor in the beginning, but has become more comfortable, giving tips and advice to her customers about how to use new kinds of produce and grow their own. Along with Empowered Health Resources in Pella, Louise has already offered one workshop on organic gardening, and hopes to hold more. If you’d like to attend a workshop, call 628-5334.
