End of 2013 Season
Happy New Year!
We want to express our warmest wishes to you all for a happy and healthy new year. Hopefully you had an enjoyable holiday season. We have used the last month to repair equipment, rest and plan for an exciting year ahead.
First we want to express our sincerest thanks to you for your support of our community farm. Because of our collective efforts we accomplished much this year and continued important work to provide for the food and health of our community while also safeguarding the health of the land and wildlife. Your participation in this project sets you apart; you are the few who actively made a choice to improve life for yourselves, others and your community and environment.
There are many rewards in this project, most notably the fresh chemical-free, GMO-free food we enjoy each week. But our farm produces so much more. It is a place of education and hope. We are a teaching farm, sharing our skills and values with the many volunteers who come to toil with us. We are a local grass roots engine of economic rebirth, we are inventors and innovators developing machines and systems that help sustainable agriculture survive and prosper in the years ahead.
Please have a look at our farm community’s scrapbook of sorts – pictures, captions and explanations of our just completed season. Enjoy!
Your participation made a difference and we are grateful that you chose to be a member with us last season. It has been our pleasure getting to know you during the past year. Having familiar faces to greet each week de-industrializes what we do as we know we are growing, grinding, sprouting and cooking for our own community, the people who have chosen to support the work we do.
We hope you have enjoyed the foods we have grown and made for you this past year. We are at that time, mid-winter when the seed catalogs are pouring in and we make plans for the upcoming growing season. Even in January we will start the seeds for the 2014 season. We invite you to renew your membership with us for the upcoming season and to do so as early as possible. Early subscribers get a significant discount and renewing members get a 5% discount added onto that. Spring funds give the farm community the resources we need to grow the food our members and customers eat. Financial resources at this time of year allow us to repair equipment, buy seed and make the necessary improvements that make our community farm possible. We have a number of new crops we anticipate bringing on and we plan to continue to add to our offerings of value added products, made by us from organic and ecologically grown materials, healthy and delicious. We endeavor to offer the widest choice in a CSA experience in our region. The website will be updated soon to include a current registration form and early bird discount rates. Please visit it to renew your membership soon. Visit us at http://www.geecreekfarm.com
Together we can make a difference in the world. Thanks again for your assistance and support!
