March at the Farm
Thanks for your support of Warner Farm in 2010. We are getting excited about the growing season with the arrival of March! Our tomatoes are just beginning their lives in the greenhouse as small seedlings, and lettuce, kale, collards, chard and broccoli are soon to follow.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Arlington CSA Share Fair this past Thursday; it was a huge success! I, for one, was very impressed with the amount of people who came in the pouring rain to meet the farmers and sign up for shares. Clearly, interest in CSAs is increasing exponentially, reflected in the growth rates of CSA membership in the last 10 years. Click here to see an interesting animation of CSA development nationwide, represented by triangles on the map. Clearly, people are realizing the incredible value you receive from a CSA share in terms of the abundance of delicious, healthy produce and community enrichment!
A reminder, the 10% discount offer expires March 15. This is not a sales gimmick, rather we are encouraging you all to sign up as early as possible to streamline our planning processes and ensure the best possible delivery of your shares! Use the code 'earlybirdcsa' when signing up. Please tell your friends in the area about our CSA and educate them on the benefits; they will thank you!
Also, a reminder that Liam will be speaking about the farm and CSAs at the Jenks Center in Winchester on March 16 at 10 AM, if you or anyone you know might like to learn more about the farm or CSAs.
