Greetings to all, 

especially those staying in E.Lansing for the summer! :)

Check out the below, imho a great idea - one can combine walking and doing good! Bonus: ran by our friendly Allen Neighborhood Center.


"Market Walk is back! I’m a huge fan of this program. It generates immediate and impactful results for our little edible park and local farmers, and you get paid to walk and enjoy the fresh air! (Or you can ‘pay it forward’ and donate your market money reward to others!) We are fortunate to have such a unique program right here on the Eastside. Check it out and spread the word. Hope to see you on the path at Hunter Park!" (by Theresa M. from MSU Libraries).

From the Allen Neighborhood Center:

MARKET WALK Begins Tuesday, June 9! Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 - 7 pm at Hunter Park. For every 5 miles you walk you will earn a $5 token to use at the Allen Farmers Market. Children over the age of 8 years old can participate as long as they are with a parent at all times. Everyone who attends will need to fill out an application, waver form, and survey. Applications will be available at every Market Walk session.

Cheers all!
