CSA Member Work Days
This season we have decided to offer a chance for our members to gain a deeper connection with their veggies by inviting you to monthly work days on the farm. Every month we’ll celebrate the joy of agriculture by welcoming folks onto the farm on the final Friday of the month. Our work sessions will happen rain or shine to give you a true taste of farming.
We’ll be continuing our CSA Work Days this coming Friday, February 24th with two optional work sessions:
Friday March 30th – 2:30-4:00 and
Friday March 30th – 4:30-6:00
For folks interested in joining us for one or both sessions we kindly request that you RSVP via email or a phone call by Friday at Noon.
We have decided to welcome folks of all ages to join us, but request those interested in working with their young children (5 -10 yrs.) to consider joining us for the mid-afternoon session from 2:30 to 4:00 PM. For those members who have expressed an interest in joining us in the fields; these sessions will allow for folks to gain a deeper understanding of what steps we take to grow delicious food for our community.
The afternoon’s tasks will vary throughout the season and be highly dependent on weather conditions and our field priorities; this week’s work may include seeding greens in the greenhouse, renovating beds in our new greenhouse, & continued brush work along the field edges and in the bramble patch.
We would ask folks who are joining us to come prepared to work and roll up their sleeves, get a little dirt under their fingernails. Please dress accordingly; the springtime offers a lot of raw weather days and as the sun’s strength dies down the late afternoon can become chilly. Layers and something to break the wind are especially valuable, as is a water bottle to help keep you hydrated, and good solid footwear.
