I would like to invite you to come to the farm this Saturday, May 5, anytime between 9 and 5, for a Work Bee!
There are many things that need doing around the farm, especially in the spring, and Robin and I would enjoy seeing you and sharing some of the spring chores with you.
There is a wide variety of jobs to be done. You can pick what suits you best.
Examples of possible tasks:
Weeding, both standing with a hoe or spading fork, or sitting and using a hand tool and doing delicate sorting.
Planting corn seedlings.
Setting dahlia tubers in the earth.
Playing music/singing to the farm workers.
Clearing brush.Securing the pea fence.
The chick house may be ready for the young chicks that day so - helping to set up their fence and moving them to their new quarters.
Taking pictures - of farmers, helpers, plants, chickens, etc.
I'll have a big pot of homemade chicken soup and some fresh Sweet Morning salad ready for our lunch break.
Bring gloves and favorite tools, sunscreen and water.
This will be a very casual, light hearted affair. If you are able to come over, to help or to encourage, that's great! If you are busy elsewhere, that's fine too. This is mostly a way for friends and farm members to see what is happening here on the farm and to help plant the seeds for a wonderful harvest. Come and go as you please. Bring a friend.
The next Farm Work Bee will be Saturday, June 2.
RSVP if you feel like it, or just show up. We'll be here!
Your happy farmers,
Laura and Rob
