Full Of Life Farms and Nursery wants to invite you join us for a Paw Paw 
Tasting this Saturday.  This is the first bumper crop from an orchard of 
250+ Paw Paw trees and we are selecting the best varieties to keep in 
the orchard and saving seed to grow in the nursery.  See the attached 
flyer for more information.

You'll also have the opportunity to tour the nursery, full of great 
landscaping plants, some of which have been discounted below already 
great prices.  We'd love for you to go home with some of these plants 
for fall planting season.

Who: Full of Life Farms

When: Saturday, Sept. 10th, 10am-6pm

Where: 2125 Jay Shambley Rd. Pittsboro NC

Co-Sponsors: Naked Fruits, Fullsteam Brewery, Silk Hope Winery, Oakmont 
Nursery, DeepEarthGardens

I thought folks would enjoy hearing this morning’s NPR story on our 
native paw paw fruit. You can read it and hear it on the NPR website at 

Our Chatham County paw paw grower Wynn Dinnsen held a paw paw tasting at 
his orchard on Sept. 10. Wynn also sells paw paw trees at his TriPlants 

You can view a few photos from the paw paw tasting and nursery tour on 
the Growing Small Farms website at http://bit.ly/qkVVpD
