A soggy update

A message from our ‘fearless leader’ …”As May moves steadily along,  farm preparations are underway for the 2011 season. The first day of plot claiming is drawing near – thanks for your patience! Composted manure will be spread over the entire farm and the field will be tilled next week when it is dry enough to do so. Unfortunately, the rainy weather has set this process back. Sunday May 22nd is the estimated date for claiming plots. Following that, there will be other dates to claim your plot. This summer we will have an on-farm water supply, which will make watering much easier. Also, seedlings for the community plot are growing well in the Irving Centre greenhouse and will be ready for transplanting soon!”

We are excited about the upcoming season but that comes as a result of the tremendous commitment and effort from some key individuals on the management team who we sadly (for us) must say farewell to as they pursue their post-graduate lives! Jake our ‘fearless leader’, Amy , Kayla and Dan worked very hard despite their academic workload and we are most grateful.  We wish you well and with much happiness and success!. Our co-ordinator Dewey,  comes with experience with the ACF as well as knowledge and a ‘get-it-done’ approach. Actually it is usually done before we knew it needed doing!!

Have you registered for the upcoming workshops? May 28th is our first of three. Have a look at  http://wp.me/pd7yx-drhe for more information!

Stay tuned for the plot claiming hopefully within the week and transplanting over a thousand seedlings for which we will be posting work sessions. Looking forward to meeting you in the garden!
