In the fall, a special growers report is sent to GSHSS market grower members.
Based on the credibility of GSHSS reports and familiarity with their marketplace, farmers sometimes skip the trial stage and go right to production.
Lidzbarski is one of several GSHSS members who actually are selling heirloom plants and produce to supermarkets -- a sure sign that they have been mainstreamed.
Recently, GSHSS has gotten more heavily involved in helping farmers market heirlooms as well as grow them.
Last year GSHSS started a special tomato-tasting in Hoboken designed to bring growers and chefs together.
GSHSS has already spawned similar groups in other states.
GSHSS is also planning to expand frequency of its publications.
