Posted on September 15th, 2020
Welcome to the fall farm share! What a week to start the season. Hopefully this is the last of the hurricane threats this month.

Well we are back from our three day hurri-cation, and we hope you have all stayed dry and have been able to reflect and participate in this critical moment of social change.

Summer in the city

Posted on June 1st, 2020
It's June and we're starting to look ahead to the summer, when we give ourselves and our fields a break.
