In this week's edition: Farmer Phil's video, $25 Refer-a friend, Add-on shares, Tutorials, Cooking class, Farm-to-Table Dinners.
Please, be sure to go in and update your veggie preferences "now" so we can see how much we need to plant. It will only take a minute...here is how to do it.
*** "Please return your CANVAS BAG and LINERS each delivery to your farmer to promote sustainability!
** (1) One more delivery "after" this one until summer season. Time to go around your house and collect bags and liners to help us out!
National CSA Day coming. Countdown already began on January 28. We have developed a campaign for you to send "emails" or a "post" on your social media to reach our goal of 500 CSA members by February 21. Are you in? Click the box on your page to begin --->
Here is how it works:
1. So "after" you sign up [many of you are already]— give someone your "personal" refer-a-friend link. It is easy to locate in your "profile" page. There is also a sample text if you have writers block, yeah!
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 during the summer season. You can buy beef, soaps, honey, maple syrup, etc. or veggies. Whatever, we have on the extras page during the season.
P.S. Send information more than once to get results. Many have never heard of farm shares before. So you can warm them up to the idea with your link and then repeat it every few days. If you need more content or free downloads here are some links from our back page (webinar link, a refilling the pantry guide, a harvest calendar, brochure, pictures of the season's shares, etc.)
There is an extra BONUS gift that everyone will receive just for signing up by midnight on February 21. We really appreciate that decision.
