Debbie Cahill and her granddaughter, Maddie Morgan, consider themselves active participants in the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce Farmers’ Market. “We’re more active on the financial side,” said the resident of Grove City with a laugh. “We’re there just about every week buying produce, flowers, or anything else that strikes our interest.” But the duo recently decided they wanted to become more actively involved by activating their green-thumbs in preparation for this year’s Farmers’ Market. On March 27, Debbie and Maddie spent several hours assisting their favorite vendors, the Stynchula family, transplant thousands of their Rupp Seed seedlings that are slated to be sold throughout the spring and summer. According to Dave Stynchula, all of the plant and produce proceeds go to the Stynchula Family Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1999 that raises funds to support the treatment and research for children with autism, as well as provided them and other children with special needs the opportunity to participate in camps or other events to enhance their lives. The GCACC Farmers’ Market is scheduled to start on May 15.
