Time to "REFER-A-FRIEND and BONUS GIFT
Steve Young, who picks up his Fall/Winter Veggie Bag in BG says, "Thank you for your time, support, and service that you are offering to our community and specifically to my home! ...we are so thrilled to have this and with a baby at home it has made our life easier and healthier and we couldn’t be happier."
NOW THAT AUTO RENEW IS PAST, I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you about this gift.
The $25 gift is for you. Here is how it works:
1. So "after" you sign up [many of you are already]— give someone your "personal link". It is easy to locate in your "personal profile" page. I have a screenshot of it here:
It can be as easy as someone at your work place that has seen you getting you weekly veggies.
2. When "new" members use the link that you give them to sign up for a weekly veggie bag, "both" of you will get $25 in credit to use towards extras this season. You can buy beef, soaps, honey, maple syrup, etc. or veggies. Whatever, we have on the extras page during the season.
P.S. When you send the link to others there is also a tutorial to help you along the way. No more writes block, yeah!
P.S.S. Use the $25 to give farm products "as gifts", or use it for yourself. You can even reprint this picture as many times as you like and label the back with your link on it.
National CSA Day coming. Countdown begins January 28. We will also develop a campaign for you to send 8 or so emails to reach our goal of 500 CSA members by February 21. Are you in?
Kalettes are petite and milder than kale and a perfect combination between nutty and sweet. They are a cross between a brussel sprout and kale. The purple beauties can be used in a salad, roasted, added to omelets, soup, sir fry or married into a vegetable pasta dish. Here is 11 ways to cook kalettes.
