2016 TapRoot CSA starts Monday

New CSA Season Starts Monday ~ Our 8th Year

Our share member wall is filling up, it is so great to see all the new and returning members and their families! Please send in your pictures :)

Good Afternoon New and Experienced CSA Members,

We are excited to be starting a new season on Monday the 4th of April with you.  

We have a few details to review with everyone as we embark on a new year together. Please review this with everyone in your family who will be collecting your TapRoot shares:

Welcome to the farm where we will share this growing season together - the ups, the downs, the excitement, the challenges, the bounty and the scarcity. The farm is open to you at any time. Anytime you are in the area, feel free to swing in, go for a walk around the ponds, check in the greenhouse, or watch the pigs, chickens, ducks and goats graze around the fields. The two farm locations are 1736 Church Street and 451 Canard Street. Check out the events section of the website for organized events such as Jamaican Jerk Pig Roasts, TapRoot Farm Equipment Day, harvest and weeding days, garlic harvest and more! Check out our webpage for more details. We hope to see you on the farm. 

Our motto is "from our hands to your hands" and we mean it. Here at the farm there are people who are working hard each day to bring you food. We deeply value people and the role they play in our food production. In joining the TapRoot CSA you too are sharing in this value of creating meaningful employment here. That is just one of the values that we, you and us, now share.

Happy April. Happy CSA start. Happy eating.

See you soon!

Sincerely

Justine

on behalf of Patricia & Josh and the whole TapRoot team.
