 Yoga in the Park 

Saturday mornings 8 am - 9 am

Cost is $5/person

Join us for Yoga in the Park at the Elmwood Park on Saturday mornings, brought to you by Dyan Lynn Bacon, from Murdock and the owner of The Zen Room.  It keeps growing each week and there is even discussion of adding another day based on the increased response.

We will count those that mark the event as “going” (click here) as registered. The final count will be checked 24 hours prior to the event. If there are fewer than 4 people marked as going, the event will be canceled for that Saturday morning.

If the events continue to be successful, we will plan to do Yoga in the Park into the Fall and possibly, pending a location, into Winter.

Bring a friend, a yoga mat (or towel) and a water bottle and come to relax during an hour of yoga!

**This is an all-level event, beginners are not only welcome - they are ENCOURAGED!! See you on the mat!!

People are LOOKING for Sweet Corn!!

Do you have sweet corn? Bring it to the Elmwood park Saturday morning to the Farmers market. 

Is your garden producing an overabundance of sweet corn, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes or anything else? 

Do you like baking cinnamon rolls, cookies, or making crafts?

Do you have honey, eggs, or even make jelly, wine or seasoning dip mixes or soup mixes?

 Bring them to the Elmwood Farmers market on Saturday mornings.

You don't need anything fancy. Heck, you don't even need a table. Just bring a chair to sit. 

We have regulars who show up every week. People are asking for tomatoes, sweet corn, and other produce. 

Recipe Bannere

Introducing a brand new edition to the weekly news. A weekly recipe feature.

This will continue during the Farmers Market season to learn how to fix new dishes with the bountiful garden harvest. 

Basil Salt


 Ever hear of Basil Salt? It's sea salt infused with fresh sweet basil. How do you use it? You can sprinkle it on anything you want to give a spicy zip or Italian flavor.

Sprinkle it on the following foods.

  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Salads
  • Watermelon
  • Use as a salt rim on Watermelon margaritas YUM! (this was a customer suggestion)
  • Garlic bread

If you have a favorite recipe please send a photo and the recipe to editor@elmwoodnebraska.com
