The end of the season

Posted on November 14th, 2021 by Lilly Emendy

We're coming to a close here at the Teaching Farm for the 2021 Fall season. The hours of sun available each day for our plants to photosynthesis and warm their roots is waning and we're harvesting our plants like it's their last chance to get into our Harvest Boxes and onto your dinner tables. For some of you who pick up every other week, this is your last share! We will take the month of December to clean up from the season, rest, and begin to plan for the future of the farm. We may have some winter pop ups to take advantage of our winter hardy crops still in the ground, and if we do, we will send out a Harvie email with a link to purchase a one-time share.

For our weekly customers, we will have one final share after this box on MONDAY, November 22nd. Please note we are moving the pick up to MONDAY instead of Wednesday, November 24th, as it's the week of Thanksgiving and Indigenous People's Day and we know many of you have alternative schedules and shopping needs that week. If Monday, 4-7p does not work for you, your share will be available in our cooler for 24/7 pick up after that point. Code is 1867. We will touch base about it again right before hand. ***For those of you with bread orders- those will be available separately on Wednesday after 2p (Jeff's weekly bake schedule is very set in stone). If you will not be available to pick up then, we can credit your account instead.

Thank you all for supporting our work this year and enjoying the bounty alongside us! In spite of the transition our farm faces this next season, moving to a new location, we have felt so much love and excitement from our volunteers, student visitors, customers, and neighbors. Farming is a work of your whole body. It's physically demanding, mentally engaging, food for your soul, and nourishment for your heart. Speaking for myself, I feel fulfilled, humbled, and expanded by this work each and every day no matter how many irrigation leaks spring forth or rows of hardy greens our resident groundhogs destroy. Thank you for the opportunity to grow food for you and your families. It is an honor. 

In peace,
