on saturday, about 40 of our csa members gathered for the bossy season kickoff, and to say it was awesome is an understatement.
a packed house with standing room only!
connecting on twitter and facebook are lively in their own ways, but there’s something particularly delicious and nutritious about meeting face-to-face. we’re very passionate about what we do, and being able to communicate that to a group of kickass supporters and fellow food lovers was a stellar way to start the season off right.
steeped in the goodness of the blue ox coffee company, we were able to zip through the logistics of dropsite pickups and csa add-ons, and riff on our views about farming and the community.
it won’t come as a surprise to any of you, but we’re all about food as medicine — the preventative kind that nourishes and delights. in a very similar way, our community sustains and supports us. seeing so many people voicing their agreement with these principles made our bossy hearts melt a little.
we sure do love you guys.
also during the meeting, we were also able to articulate some ways that we aim to stand out: with our “no waste pledge,” weed n’ feed wednesdays, dirty thursdays, farm fresh fridays, and csa member events during the season.
as a bonus, you don’t have to be part of the csa program to be a member in our farm community. everyone is welcome to come out and weed and get dirty and help us pack up vegetables.
or just come visit us at the fulton farmers market on saturdays, starting on may 19. we’ll be there with the same zesty enthusiasm for making this a bossy season indeed.
the csa kickoff reminded us of why we started a farm in the first place: to feel connected. to each other, to ourselves, to our food and our land. but also connected to others.
you fuel our excitement for what’s ahead, so thanks for such a perfect kickoff.
