Good Earth
More Than a Store

Good Earth is a local, family owned produce and garden center that specializes in providing the freshest and tastiest local fruits, veggies, clean meats, free range eggs, and dairy from local farmers. We also support local bakers, families, and artisans by selling amazing homemade breads, casseroles and sweets, oils, jarred goodies, dried goods, soaps, candles, and oh so much more! Over the years, our faithful customers have repeatedly requested non-local produce that cannot be grown in our area, so we provide these products too. This time of year, you'll find our greenhouse full of gorgeous ready- to-plant spring flowers, hanging baskets, herbs, and veggies as well as houseplants and succulents. You can get almost anything else on-line or at the big box stores, but get the freshest produce and most beautiful plants right here at Good Earth. Experience the CSRA's little secret that's not a secret anymore! We were voted Best Produce 2018 by readers of the Augusta Magazine and are One of the Top 10 Best Farmers Markets in Georgia according to Yelp!

Avocados for Eyesight

Cynthia F Catts,  RD, LD

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, we are celebrating the humble avocado in all of its nutritious glory! Avocados contain carotenoids that are linked to eye health. These antioxidants (lutein and zeaxanthin) accumulate in the retina and lens of the eye. There, they are thought to filter the blue UV rays from the sun which can damage these eye parts. In turn, this can help to prevent macular degeneration and possible cataracts. Dark leafy greens such as spinach and kale, other dark-green veggies such as broccoli and zucchini, and egg yolks are also sources of these two healthful compounds. However, avocados have the additional perk of being rich in monounsaturated fats, which some research suggests may help reduce macular degeneration risk. Even more beneficial, the fat in avocados helps the body better absorb antioxidants, including lutein and zeaxanthin, not just from the avocado itself but from other fruits and veggies you eat at the same time (disclaimer: margaritas are not considered a fruit).

One more reason to include a nice variety of fruits and veggies (including avocados!) in a healthy diet!! 

The Farmer's Market
A Cake for a Queen

Moms- you're amazing. You taught us how to show up in the world and be kind and strong and independent. You cooked dinners and read stories and tied shoes. You lost sleep when we cried as babies or came home too late as teenagers. You worried and supported and forgave over and over and over again. You reminded us of our power when we felt defeated and reminded us to be humble when we thought we knew it all. This is a pre-Mother's Day shout out to the ladies who hold it all together and a friendly PSA to all partners and children: make sure she feels like the queen that she is! As always, we're here to help, and this Mother's Day our local baker has outdone herself with these STUNNING Champagne & Pearl cakes. The perfect addition to the champagne and pearls she'll already be receiving, this cake is truly fit for the queen in your life. The addition of bubbles makes for a cake that is luxuriously airy while also decadently moist. A gorgeously scalloped cream cheese and vanilla icing adds elegance and grace. Surprise your mom (or celebrate yourself!) with one of these masterpieces on your table for Mother's Day dinner next Sunday. Each Champagne & Pearl cake is made to order, so don't forget to call or stop by the store before May 8 to place your order!

Our Greenhouse
The Gift that Keeps on Giving

If you think moms are hard to shop for, you haven't been inside our greenhouse yet. Cards, balloons, and even brunches quickly come and go, so be sure you also get her something that will make her continue to smile for months to come. Nothing does the trick quite like a gorgeous potted plant from Good Earth! Unlike the box stores, our spring pots and hanging baskets are of a premium quality, locally grown and tended to by some of the best in the business. For that reason, you'll find beautiful, unique varieties that you won't see anywhere else, so you can guarantee that Mom will feel special. Want bonus points? Let Mom relax while you plant her window boxes or kitchen garden. Pick up bedding flats of flowers or vegetables as a surprise beforehand, or- for choosier moms- take home a Good Earth gift card so she can get exactly what she wants. Don't forget, it's all about her! 

P.S. To my own mother: thank you for instilling within me such a deep love for plants, for being my biggest fan, and for always reading my writing, even when you're 400 miles away. I love you!
