Dear Friends of the Farm,
1. Orchard Work Party
2. Potluck – Friday at 6:30
3. Farm CSA shares
4. Plant sale
1. Just a quick reminder that our Orchard team would love some help Thursday night so if you can stop by, even for an hour or so, we’d love to see you. The Orchard is located at the south end of Gilbert Rd, next to the dyke.
2. This Friday, May 6th, the Farm is hosting it’s monthly potluck along with a guest speaker from the National Farmers Union who will talk about the NFU’s activities and its newest project to build a stronger coalition of farmers in western Canada. Bring a dish to share and a serving utensil. Plates and cutlery provided. Kids are most welcome.
3. If you’re interested in eating more locally-grown produce, the Sharing Farm has a wonderful deal for you. We are selling shares of produce through a program called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Each week, starting in July, shareholders come to the farm to pick up a weekly share of 7-8 different veggies. The CSA will last 12 weeks at a cost of $300 for the season ($25 per share). If you are interested in purchasing a share (and we only have about 8 left), please contact Arzeena at firstname.lastname@example.org or come by the farm and speak to our staff.
4. Don’t forget that our plant sale is this weekend. Come early for the best selection. The sale starts on Saturday at 10am inside the Red Barn at Terra Nova.
