Another week of delicious, crisp, leafy greens and radishes too!, Please check the farm’s newsletter below to see what will come this Thursday .
We want to thank our volunteers last week for a job well done!
This week’s volunteers are: Jeannie, JiaMei, Taehoon and Xiaomeng. The site supervisors are: Taehoon and Larry.
Again some important information:
If someone is picking up your “box” on your behalf, we need to know in advance the name of the person picking up, and the first/last name of the person they are picking up for. If you are sharing with someone, you need to let the volunteer at the sign-in table know who your share partner is – their first/last name. The volunteer will write your share partner’s name on a post-it and it will be on the box under the pick-up table.
We also ask that you email or call us with any concerns at the CSA’s phone number. Unless you need to reach us at the pick-up location at which time you may email or call one of the the core members – their phone numbers are in the Volunteer Directions. We ask that you do not call their personal phone numbers after pick-up hours.
If you are volunteering this week, it is absolutely essential that you read the volunteer directions below. The directions are different than last year, so even seasoned members need to read them.Even if you are not volunteering this week, it is a good idea to become familiar with them so you understand exactly what’s going on.
Members who have dairy and egg shares will get them this week as usual. While you had to order your share of dairy, eggs and/or meat, if you would like to order anything from Goodale Farm, send us an email and we will arrange it.
No on-site vendor this week. Next week Spice Tree Organics will return to sell their unique organic homemade spices. Elisabeth of Sweet William’s Tortes will return the beginning of July,. If you want to put in a pre-advance order, contact Elisabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org
Online vendor Lewis Waite
You should receive an email later this week from Lewis Waite. If you would like to order anything from them (these are not shares, but rather individual purchases), please visit their site. The next delivery will be June 22nd. You order and pay them directly online via Paypal or send them a check. We do not handle payments to Lewis Waite.
Fruit shares will start in July; It all comes down to what’s ready to be harvested at the perfect moment of ripeness. Be ready to be amazed!
You might also want to bring your checkbook, credit card or cash to buy an olive oil, almond butter, and sweet S & V jams. We will have them all season.
Please be sure to sign-up for your volunteer hours if you haven’t already; you should have received an email from SignUp.com; Let us know ASAP if you have not. Please – it is important that you honor your volunteer commitment; it is part of the cost of CSA membership. As you know, we are an all-volunteer run organization and we need your to help run the season smoothly so you can enjoy your delicious organic produce and add-on items. If the hours are truly a burden, reach out to the Core Team – maybe you have another skill that could fulfill your commitment.
High School Student Volunteers
We are looking for High School Student volunteers who need to get credit and fulfill their community service requirements. The student must be 16 years of age or older. They will need to volunteer at our weekly pick-ups for the full season – June to November. Our site supervisor will sign their service credit forms every week and will provide a reference letter at the end of the season that the student can use when applying for a job or college. The high school term will soon be finished, so please let your family, friends and neighbors know about this opportunity.
Caroline, Dionne, Emily, John, Judy and Larry
