Ed brought Josh back a present from his holiday last week. Very fitting!
It's October 5th 2016. Happy October!
You would have gotten a notice from us this weekend about the non-thanksgiving box we sent out this week. There are just too many fresh vegetable available
Turkeys are going out this week. They will be in coolers with your name on them. :)

Tim is prepping the greenhouses for spinach for shares this winter. This is our first winter with heated greenhouses, providing the shares with fresh greens over the winter.
All of the fall vegetables are starting to come in large quantities now from the fields. Bins of beets, potatoes, celeriac, apples, leeks, and squash.
All members who have an outstanding balance for shares will have received a monthly statement by e-mail. The purpose of these statements is to ensure your account is accurate, but also a reminder to those who haven't made an October payment yet, to make it as soon as possible.
Nourish boxes are going out this week. This is a school fundraiser, where children sell vegetable boxes, with all you would want for thanksgiving dinner, to friends and family (same idea as chocolate bars or wrapping paper), and then we make and delivery the boxes to the schools. This is our second year with this program, and the increase in demand is huge. Last year we made just under seven hundred and this year we are making six thousand boxes. It is so great to see such a demand for fresh, local fruits and vegetables. To learn more, go to nourishns.ca.
