Greetings friends!
We appreciate your continued patience and support during this unseasonably warm drought. The rains have missed us once again. Please send positive thoughts for a downpour!
We welcome volunteers on harvest days (Tuesdays and Fridays 8-4) and also need about a dozen volunteers to adopt-a-crop (strawberries, flowers and perennial herbs). Adopting a crop is simple. Just come out at your convenience to weed a crop! This helps support your farmers tremendously. It frees us up to spend time on tedious projects such as trellising, sheet mulching, seed planting and cultivating. We appreciate your commitment to the good foods movement! Email if you would like to adopt a crop.
Sincerely, Your farmers

If you have not yet received an email regarding your first pick up, designation and pick up dates, please email and let me know your full name, pick up location, and whether you are a full or alternate shareholder.
