We Grow It, You Eat It

  October 17th, 2014

So the main season veggie CSA is over. That means we’re finished gardening right? No way! We still have extended season members to supply until the end of the month.We’ll also be stocking our farmstore with fresh fall produce. Coming up in the garden we have spinach, salad greens, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower… We’re still in the game! Stop on by on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays. We’ll be switching to Saturdays only come November.

CSA Update
Remember to sign-up for vegetables, chicken and beef for next year! Already? Yes! Why? Because this stuff sells out fast. There are many more hungry mouths in Ottawa than there is fresh, delicious, organic, biodynamic food. Make sure you get your share by signing-up early.
What do we do with your money?
Well, for starters, we’ll fix our driveway. Maybe you’ve noticed; it’s getting pretty bad… A grading blade and a 22 ton load of gravel should fix that. We just need $1400 to get the project going. We also have to pay our bills, pay our rent, buy gardening supplies, pay staff, pay taxes, fix tools and machines, buy seeds, pay subscription fees and union dues. Our CSA helps us keep a steady income coming in all year instead of only a few months a year during harvest time. It minimizes our need for financial assistance, enables the creation of a more reliable budget and it makes sure we can accomplish important tasks when they need to happen. Thank you for your generous support!
