A belated fall update (with a bonus winter update!)

Yes, a fall update, at the end of the second week of December. As you might have guessed, our growing season has just about wrapped up. Recently, we’ve been working on a little cleanup (though you might not guess it walking by) and lot of planning – grant writing, thinking of sweet ideas to involve more folks, deciding how many artichokes to plant (100,000,000) and preparing for CONTRA DANCING! (See below!) We’re also interested in convening a group of folks to help us think of ways to expand the breadth of the project…maybe plots dedicated for the food bank, or food boxes, or a ‘veggie of the month’ program with all the fixings. What do you think? Any interest in coming to a convening of brilliant minds? We’ll have details of our ‘smokin strategy session’ at the ‘smokin contra dance.’

ok! dance details!

Contra Dance

Saturday, January 10

For the Acadia Community Farm

Featuring Amy Lounder and Shannon Lynch from the Smokin’ Contra Band with Jamie Simpson and Tanya Groundwater

Swing your partner round n’ round

Do-si-do till the moon is down

Jigs and reels to kick up your heels

Old time fun so come if you want and don’t have anything better to do, maybe.

Time: Beginner lesson at 7:30 pm, dance starts promptly at 8 pm
Location: Horton Community Hall (Old Red School House), Grand Pre
Cost: $8 students/seniors, $10 adults, tickets sold in advance at the Box of Delights, the Vegetarian Lunchbox, the SUB Info Desk, the and available at the door

Experience: Not necessary, the caller tells you what to do

Partners: Not necessary

Footwear: Not necessary……well you might get stomped on. Flat-soled, non-scuffing shoes are best

Water bottle: A good idea to bring one


as always, questions and suggestions can go to info@acadiafarm.org – but if you’re interested in the concert specifically, might as well go straight to the source (sarah can be reached at sarah_haverstock@acadiafarm.org).

thanks! keep in touch!
