Trees! Beauty! Shade!
The farm is looking LOVELY and lush and 54 trees - two kinds of mesquite and a about 8 Pakistan mulberry have been purchased with the $50 from you. Many have been planting. We asked for donations here. 30 trees? Nope - 54!!! Thank you thank you thank you!
Farm Style Potluck
To say THANK YOU, we decided to have a farm style potluck (everyone bring something to share and already Shaun and his wife are bringing pulled pork). We will provide something cold to drink, the plateware and silverware and the garden to gather in. If you want wine - bring your own. This potluck is for ALL those of have donated $ for a tree or two or three. (Sorry - no kids this time.) This potluck is ALSO for ALL those who have given of their time to PLANT these trees AND who are Joy and Michele's list of regular volunteers (that show up more than once a month).
We will NOT send an email invite to TREE donation people - rather you'll see a BLOG post announcing the date in June sometime. We're thinking either a Friday early evening or a Sunday late afternoon and this will most likely be held in the new garden space being created.
We WILL send an email invite to VOLUNTEERS. We feel so blessed at the outreach of the community to add to the beauty of our farm.
Many of you have made your donation in honor of someone special and Stacey will be working on those little plaques - we're hoping to have them by specific trees by the potluck.

Because of nice press - local press and not so local press - our farm is fast becoming a place to host a farm to table dinner, experience some corporate team building, celebrate a birthday, baby shower, and take a garden tour. Here is a recent post by The Meeting Magazine. One of the people who came for one of our team building days was interviewed about their experience.
We are currently reserving farm and garden space into May of 2016. Contact us here for more info.
