State of the Farm

With the beginning of the summer upon us work has picked up at the farm. Having planted our first succession of summer crops it now becomes a race to kick back the weeds and watch our favorite summer veggies grow. The first week in June also marks the beginning of our weekly Farm Box Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.

Farm Box: Sponsor Share

We are still looking for a few more individuals or families to buy Sponsor Shares from our Farm Box program. These dedicated Sponsor Share CSA supporters help us to provide 30 low-cost family boxes filled with fresh, local and sustainable veggies throughout Summer and Fall.

Sponsor Shares cost $750 and include a weekly large box filled with a variety of seasonal vegetables from June 5 through November 6.

Apply for a Sponsor Share by emailing your name, phone number, and address to info@veggielution.org.

Art in the Garden
June 23, 2-4pm, $10

Get inspired! Every 4th Saturday of the month we will be holding art classes at the farm, with each class focused on a different theme. The first class will be about basic approaches to responding artistically to your natural surroundings, basic drawing and design technique, and basic selective technique.

What to bring: pencil, paper, hard surface to work on, eraser, (if you need, something to sit on: towel, blanket, camping stool, etc). All additional mediums welcome. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please pay the facilitator at the beginning of class. All experience levels are welcome.
