Dear Tools to Till Tilian
The farm is growing! (And
not just vegetables) The farmers are plowing more acreage, and the pigs, ducks,
goats and chickens are aging from tiny tots to sprightly adolescents. We also
have three wonderful interns: Emily, our volunteer coordinator, Michelle, our
development assistant and party planner, and Tim, our social media
manager. AND, volunteers! Folks
are joining us weekly to weed, plant flowers and share a potluck meal. These
folks, along with the farmers, advisory team and steering committee are
promoting the great work of the farm and its potential for long-term success.
Please join us as we continue to invest in our food
shed! There are 4 great events coming up that you don’t want to
