The final, crowning week of this season has arrived. This is the last week for CSA pick-ups for the 2013-2014 season and Sunday Market. For our last act this season, remember to come out to our Farmers’ Market this Sunday to get your summer fix of organically grown produce, artisan crafts, farmy music jams, local food, sweaty farmers, and good vibes. If you have a friend that has never been to the farm, invite them to our Farm Tour and Open House during the market. The tour will be led by Sweetwater’s very own founder, Rick Martinez, and then a Q&A session for anyone interested in our CSA membership, education programs, and finding out what is a non profit, community farm. The farm tour is from 1:00-2:00pm and you can stay to chat and learn at 2:00pm.
Don’t let the news get you down though. We’ll be back next season and you can still sign up for your 2014-2015 CSA membership here!
