CSA 8 (B)
Greeting from the Garden Crew!
We are happy to announce our first sightings of black soldier flies. Which brings us to the question, what is the importance of a black soldier flies? Come down to the farm and find out, during our first annual Compost Workshop. It will be held on May 24th, taught by our own botanist/entomologist Lori Moshman. The Afternoon workshop will go over several methods of home composting including hot and cold piles, vermicomposting, and black soldier fly composting. The experience includes a farm tour and lunch at the Pavilion.
This weekend was ripe with the season’s first gifts of nutrition. Our orchard has provided us with peaches, apples, & nectarines. Fruit preserves and homemade fruit ice cream should soon be featured at our on site restaurant: The Pavilion. Spring’s first blueberries have begun to emerge on their bushes. We plan to have fresh blueberries for sale from our neighbor farm Koinonia. We will let you know when they will be available!
We would like to thank all of the CSA members that gave comments and suggestions in regards to the on farm tour and dinner. We are still looking for comments and a few creative people to partner with during the planning phase. If you are interested in being a part of the festivities or have suggestions we would love to hear your feedback!
