2012 apprentices Ben and Cody making bouquets last Summer

2012 apprentices Ben and Cody making bouquets last Summer

This coming Wednesday, August 21st, please join us at the Johnson Farm on Bainbridge Island for Bouquet Making 101: A Flower Arranging Class with Rebecca Slattery.

Come learn from a pro! Rebecca will share flower arranging principles and tricks at the beautiful Johnson Farm. Class starts at 3pm and runs til 4:30 pm (please feel free to leave earlier if you wish).

The class fee is $25 which will include instruction and the opportunity to make two fresh flower bouquets to take home. (Basically, the $25 just covers the cost of the flowers. The instruction is free.)

Please feel free to invite friends and spread the word. All are welcome.

If you are able to attend, please let us know by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, so we know how many buckets of flowers to harvest before the class. Call (360) 297-1877 please leave a message or email Rebecca. (No drop ins, please or we might not harvest enough flowers!)

We hope to see you Wednesday!!

Subscriber boxes waiting for pickup late last summer

First pickup and orientation is June 5th

Hors D’oeuvres • Lots of New Information • Garden Tour • First Produce Pickup

Shares still available! If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining us, please spread the word.

CSA subscribers: You are invited to bring your family and join us for an evening at the farm. Wednesday, June 5, 5:30 – 7:30 pm. See your summer vegetables growing! Taste a leaf of sweet Fennel or sour Sorrel as you stroll the fields. (No dogs please. Our chickens and peacocks are free-ranging) It is quite 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, please, to those who cannot make the 100-yard walk up the hill.

Your final payment will be due at the orientation. Most full shares have already paid a $250 deposit—the balance is $400. Split shares sent a $150 deposit and have $350 remaining. Checks should be made payable to Rebecca Slattery (Bainbridge Island) or Louisa Brown (Indianola).

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.

If you have any questions, please call Rebecca at (360) 297-1877.
