Important Announcements from Your Farmer

Greetings to the members of Boulder Knoll Community Farm CSA-

Extra share out…!

Things are looking really great for the start of the 2009 share out season, so good, in fact that I have decided to make a distribution to all members next week. Everyone’s pick up day will be Monday the 15th from 4 pm to 7 p.m. for next week only. You will be getting lettuce, radishes, bok choi, and a mixed bouquet of cooking greens (red Russian kale, lacinato kale, and swiss chard). Regular share outs will begin the following week. You have signed up for either Monday or Thursday. Pick up times will be the same – 4 pm to 7 pm. The address is 800 Boulder Road, Cheshire. If you are not able to pick up your share on Monday, please let me know asap. Thank you …

Thank you to all who have put in time working on the farm so far. Amazingly, folks who are not even members have been volunteering too. It’s a great community effort. If you want to schedule some of your 12 hours please contact member Annmarie Golioto at agolioto@srhs.org.

Member list publication…

I am going to publish the list of members with your address, pick up day, phone #, etc. This way you can organize pick up groups or what- have-you. One person asked me not to include his information, but I do not know who it was. Please contact me directly. Member fees… Please, please pay the second part of your fee ($200) if you have not done so already. Email Carol Goertz (see cc above) for the address to send a check and to let her know it’s coming.

Compost…

We invite you to bring compostable materials when you come (kitchen scraps including paper towels and napkins, leaves, organic grass clippings).

Potluck lunch and farm tour

Please join us for a beginning of the season celebration at the farm on Saturday, June 20 from 12 noon to 2 pm. We’ll eat the lunch food we’ve brought to share and then have a tour of the gardens. Please bring the whole family!

Our blog…

Keep track of what’s in your upcoming share, share recipes, and read the news from the farm at http://blog.friendsofboulderknoll.com/

A plug for our restaurant friend, Caseus…

Check out Caseus restaurant and cheese bistro at 93 Whitney Ave. (on the corner of Whitney Ave. and Trumbull St.) in New Haven. Owner Jason Sobocinski and chef Chris cook up “to die for” food using mostly organicingredients from Boulder Knoll Community Farm and other local sources. Call 624-3373 for a reservation. It’s my favorite restaurant in town and really worth the trip. See you on Monday the 15th!
