CSA Update!

Posted 5/19/2017 11:42am by Josie Hart.


Dear Shareholders,

Hello from snowy Chatfield Farms! With temperatures possibly dipping down into the high 20s here, we'll have to see how the crops come through the weekend before we make a call on starting distributions next week, as originally scheduled (weekly at 4p.m. - Tuesday and Thursday). We'll be back in touch by Monday to let you know if we will have distribution next week or push it back to the following week.

In the meantime, I'd like to introduce our staff this season, or rather have them introduce themselves. Here's a photo of the crew from today and a brief introduction.

 

Betzi: I'm so excited for my third season farming here at Chatfield Farms, the sixth season of my farming career. I love good work for its own sake and it's important to me to be connected to community and the land.

 Alicia: I'm excited for my first season working on a farm. Last summer I was here learning about farming with the Veterans Farm Program and I'm enjoying putting that knowledge to use here at Chatfield Farms and in my garden at home.

 Jordan: I have been lucky enough to farm on the East Coast and make my way out to Colorado for the season. Looking forward to sharing recipes with you all this season!

Lindsay: The "Okra King!" I recently moved to Colorado and am very excited to be a part of the team at Chatfield Farms. This is my fourth year growing organic produce and I am working to start a market farm of my own.

Tim: Hello! I'm 24 years old. I'm originally from Boulder and a Colorado State alum. This is the third CSA program I've worked for and I'm really excited to be part of the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms team!

And of course, Phil Cordelli, CSA Farm Manager is at the helm of the CSA Farm with Josie Hart, Program Manager reaching out on a regular basis to you all--we are both here if you have questions or need help navigating!

This weekend we will send a brief "How To" for our CSA distributions so all who are new this year feel comfortable at our market-style CSA. 

We look forward to feeding your family and getting to know you. The land here belongs to all of us and we are excited to be good stewards of it!

Still Available: We are stilling selling our fermentation share! If you would like to pick up a renewing Balanced Belly drink every week, 
(cultured monthly veggies also included)...
