The greenhouse is getting full, and the starts are looking so healthy and amazing! We are going to start moving them outside so they will be ready for planting when you pick them up. Pictured below is red cabbage on the left and collards on the right.
There are still some shares left. Please get in touch with me if you want to register for this year.
Open House and Optional Seed Pick-up
For the second year, we're going to have an open house for 2015 Garden Starts CSA members only. It will be from 9am-12pm on Saturday, April 11 at the NAU greenhouse complex. Come and see where we grow your starts, talk to the folks who grow them, and meet the hard-working volunteers that make it all possible. John Taylor, the director of Terra Birds will be there too. This is your chance to get a behind the scenes tour of this operation and pick up your seeds! If you can not make it, you can pick up your seeds during the first pick up (information on pick-ups coming soon). Directions to greenhouse: We are #79 on the NAU map. Coming from the southwest on Pine Knoll, you will pass a bus stop on your left and then take a right onto a road marked by a blue sign that says greenhouse (among many other things). Once on this street, you'll climb a short hill before coming to the greenhouses and a little parking lot. You can see the greenhouse from Pine Knoll, if you come to a 4 way stop, you went too far. On Saturdays, you can park by the greenhouse, or in the large parking lot in front of the greenhouse without a permit.
Annual Seed Exchange
Also happening next Saturday is the NAU SSLUG and Flagstaff Foodlink are joining up again to host the Annual Seed Exchange from 2-4 pm at Mercado de los Suenos at 2532 E. 7th Ave. (in the Sunnyside neighborhood). This is a free event, and you do not have to have seeds to participate. Please bring envelopes for seeds and a pen/pencil.
Enjoy your weekend,
