Urban Roots Friends,

        We are gearing up for the 2012 growing season. The greenhouse is filled with happy little seedlings waiting for the call to the field. The mild winter has spoiled us, and with the warming temperatures we are getting more done everyday. The CSA Program is developing very nicely, and we can hardly wait for the first delivery date. (Click here for more info. We still have shares available)
    One of the reasons we are so excited about the coming season is, compared to this time last year, we are in a really fantastic position. We have most of our infrastructure in place, and functioning. The ground is turned, and for the most part, the red clay and rock veggie plots which we worked so hard to amend last year is looking primed, and ready. Our high tunnels (30′ X 48′ passively heated movable greenhouses) are 95% complete and functional. The greenhouse is coming along very well, with just some organizing, irrigating, and small tasks left to complete. The season has just begun, and it’s already looking really promising.
      While most of the BIG tasks, are complete, or nearly so, we have many smallish nagging jobs which hang over our heads daily, and get in the way of working on the daily tasks of growing food. Our friends Mike Kromrey, and Stuart Murr, have been kind enough to plan a volunteer farm work day to help us knock out some of these tasks. They planned it, and I’m putting out the call. The day is this coming Saturday, March 3rd from 8:30 on with lunch provided. We will also have a planning meeting this coming Thursday for folks who are interested in helping run crews (just let me know if that’s you). We will have work for folks with all skill levels. Whether you can help us out for an hour, or all day, we would love to see you here.
What: Urban Roots Farm workday
When: Workday: Saturday March 3rd 8:30- 5:00    Planning night: Thursday March 2nd 6:00pm
Why: Because nothing makes the work lighter, and our hearts more joyous than working side by side with our community.
Who: Anyone who understands, or wants to understand the why.

We will provide lunch, so if you can reply to this message to let us know you’ll be coming.

Thanks, Adam
