NEXT WEEK: The 2016 CSA season is over.
What a week! As I said in an email to the membership after the election, no one is going to build a better world for us. That is true no matter who is in the White House. We must work together to create a world that is just, fair and based on love and mutual respect. In our small way, these lofty goals were visible this past Sunday at the CSA meeting. Thanks to all who participated. For the full rundown on what transpired, check your email inbox. We appreciate everyone's interest and support of our plans for sabbatical in 2017.
The end of the CSA season has arrived with the final shares to the extended season members. This usually is cause for bittersweet celebration at the farm. The first shares went out in mid-April, almost 7 months ago. Since then we have been on a weekly CSA schedule that is relentless. Until now. We are looking forward to the winter work of maintaining equipment, organizing the barns and planning for the year ahead.
