Getting Oriented this week

First, we’d like to thank everyone who was able to come out and volunteer and/or attend the Planter’s Ball.  We had a wonderful turnout and a lot of fun was had by all.  Our community really made some amazing food!  The beer from St Somewhere was superb.  The music by Rob Irie (pronounced “I-ree” not, “Eerie” – sorry ’bout that Rob), was perfect.

Members will have another opportunity to have some fun at the farm this Saturday for an orientation at the farm.  The “new member” orientation will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will cover the basics of how and when to pick up your CSA share.  (Renewing members may also attend if they like, but is not necessary.)

Then we will have an informative one-hour farm tour led by our Farm Manager, Roberto, from approximately 10:30-11:30.  The tour is free and open to everyone.

Following the Farm Tour we will hold a Volunteer orientation from 11:30-12:00.  This is a brief overview of our volunteer program, including details on what to wear and bring, where to park, how to sign in, and an overview of the different volunteer opportunities available at the farm.

Members and non-members may attend for any portion of the day.  No need to RSVP… just show up at the farm at the designated times above and be sure to wear comfortable, close-toed shoes, and bring something to drink.

If you are unable to make it to the orientation, don’t worry!  We will have a help table set up for the first month of pick-ups to walk you through the process.

You’ll also notice that our CSA Pick-up Schedule is complete and is available now on our website.  (We will also have hard copies of the schedule available for pick-up at the farm if you do not have a printer at home.)

We’re looking forward to meeting all of our new members and volunteers!
