It's Almost Time!
Event season is just around the corner, with our first Strawberry Day only 5 weeks away! (Tickets go on sale in 2 weeks!) Lorraine and I walked the farm on Monday afternoon and found strawberries in their first growth, turning a deliciously bright red. We searched for a few berries that were ripe enough to eat but decided to come back later in the week as they were all a little white on the inside and needed a few more days.
Strawberry Days as well as the other events on the farm are the best time to come out and visit your farm and see how your produce is grown. You’ll have the opportunity to walk the farm, pick produce straight from the fields for tasting, chat with Nigel and Lorraine and the Eatwell crew, and commune with nature.
In an effort to grow the CSA and share the farm with the greater community, Eatwell Farm events will be open to the public this season. CSA members will have two weeks to purchase tickets for the events ahead of the public, so be sure to purchase your tickets as soon as they go on sale to ensure that you will not miss out! Keep an eye on your newsletter and emails for the direct link to tickets, as this will not be posted on our website until tickets are available to the greater public. As CSA members, you’re welcome to use the direct link to purchase tickets for your friends, family and colleagues before the sales are opened up to the public. Please send any questions you have about events to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. - Emily
Join The Eatwell Farm Event Crew
We offer members the opportunity to work on event days since we need as much help as we can get. Members can work for cash or for CSA credit (CSA credit pays more). If you’re interested in signing up to work one or more of the events, please fill out the Eatwell Farm Events Crew Interest Form found under the CSA Farm Box tab at www.eatwell.com. I’ll begin filling the slots for the event crew next week, so please fill out the form ASAP if you’d like to join the team! We guarantee you’ll have lots of fun and help out the farm tremendously at the same time.
