Wednesday, June 6, 5:30-7:30pm at the Farm
All registered subscribers are requested to attend. (If you’re not yet a subscriber and would like to join, please contact us.) It’s important that at least one member of each subscriber household attend. After this meeting, our pickups will be on a self-serve basis and must run smoothly for everyone to get his/her share of the just-harvested bounty.

We’ll explain the system at the orientation, as well as sign you up for bread, cheese or egg shares, or other delectable additions to our own farm’s harvest, if you’re interested. Each of these is an add-on to the CSA, a delicious way to support local producers, and an opportunity to collect an even more abundant basket each week. Your first vegetables of this season will be ready for you to take home. The distribution will come at the end of the evening for new subscribers. Returnees may pay their balance, grab veggies and go if you like. Bring a bag or box to carry your bounty down the driveway. Please park on Midway or in the designated pasture area halfway up the drive. Our parking area at the orientation site is limited to those who cannot make the 100-yard walk up the hill.

Rebecca, Louisa, Bill and our apprentices are very excited to see this program starting for another glorious season. We look forward to meeting all our new subscribers and seeing the familiar faces of friends and neighbors.


First pickup and subscriber orientation is soon — June 6th

Fom what I hear, the 2012 Season is looking to be abundant! The first CSA pickup and “Orientation” is a special event. All subscribers converge at the farm, (including the Bainbridge Islanders). Tasty hor d’oeuvres are served, subscribers learn how the self-serve pickups work, tour the garden to see their veggies growing and meet the new apprentices. Also we can choose “add-ons” from local producers — wonderful cheese, bread, eggs, honey, etc. If you haven’t signed up yet, give Rebecca a call and reserve your share (360) 297-1877. Imagine having lots of fresh very local, sustainably grown veggies every week, June – October! Start a healthy, yummy habit. Learn more about Persephone’s CSA.


Rebecca Slattery and Louisa Brown

March 31, (tomorrow!) at 1 pm our own Rebecca Slattery will speak at the Bainbridge Island Home & Garden Show.  “Tips For Growing Organic Vegetables in the Pacific NW” is her topic. This is a rare opportunity to learn from the veggie master.  Her talk proceeds the keynote by Andy Navage of Bloedel Reserve – “Secrets of the Bloedel Reserve – Great Successes and Dismal Failures”. This is sure to be a well attended event so get there early. There are over 60 exhibitors and full schedule of speakers. More details here.


Rebecca with a crazy potato
The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market Winter Market continues this Saturday (Dec. 10) and next (Dec. 17). Here Rebecca is showing off some strange looking fingerling potatoes, can you tell the fingers from the potatoes? They may look odd, but they are yummy. Grown right here in Indianola! Bundle up and head over Saturday and say hello.

The Winter Market is on the corner of Winslow Way and Madison, you can’t miss it. Fingerling potato

The Bainbridge Farmers’ Market continues as the “Winter Market”  at the Eagle Harbor Congregational Church, Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, Nov. 19 through Dec. 17. Support your local producers! There is no better place to get absolute fresh and local ingredients for your holiday meals. Persephone Farm will be there offering our fine veggies, herbs and flower bouquets. To learn more about the Winter Market visit the Farmer’s Market website.

Instead of Town Square at City Hall Park we’ll be at Eagle Harbor Congregational Church. It’s at the corner of Winslow Way and Madison.
