We’ve gotten a late start with our blog posts this year, so here’s a recap of everything we’ve been up to for the last 5 weeks:

We’ve gotten our shoulders nice and tan working 20 hours per week at the farms– we split our time in half between the Urban farm and LaFarm. We’ve transplanted, weeded, watered, trellised, harvested and mulched our way into the end of June. We’ve discussed the topics of food justice, food sovereignty, community food security, and food agency with Professors Cohen and Malinconico. Sarah Edmonds, the LaFarm manager, and Curt Rowell, the Urban farm manager, have taught us a lot about the daily chores that need to get done to keep the farms on track.

The veggies are looking great, and we are prepping for our first veggie stand of the season on July 6th! We are working on getting flyers printed and trying to figure out how to spread the word about the veggie stand among the Easton community. We have planned to have small events at each stand including a demonstration held by the Easton Hospital nutritionist, lemonade stand, games, music, and a potluck.
