A few CSA reminders!

Posted 9/30/2013 2:05pm by Josie Hart.

Dear Shareholders,

We wanted to remind you of a few things coming up for the CSA!

Please join us for our fall potluck, Sunday October 6th 1- 4 p.m. If you would like to do the corn maze and take a hay ride while you are here, tickets are $5/$10 for a family. Please bring a dish to share (we will have power if you want to keep yours warm) and meet us under the Prairie Canopy tent which is on the far side of the Visitor Center when you arrive in the parking lot. We will have beer, lemonade, water and ice tea as well. We hope to see you all there!

Our much coveted Chatfield honey is available for purchase starting this Thursday (10/3) at distribution. Tuesday members will have the chance to purchase honey as well next week. Pint jars and half pints are available and please don’t worry if we sell out - our bee keepers, Bob and Josie Dolezal will supply us with more!

Ela Farms, our apple growers unfortunately will not have apple seconds available for purchase this year. Because of the late snow in May the apple trees lost their blossoms in those storms making supply limited this year – in fact, it pays to be CSA members - a lot of other vendors have not received any Ela fruit this year because they are saving all fruit for their CSA/markets only.
The Chatfield CSA staff is hoping to make it through the end of October for distributions which would make the 29th and 31st the last day for both distributions. Thanks so much for enjoying the ride with us!

If you have any questions, we have had problems with our CSA email. We apologize if you have tried to contact us and we have not replied. Please send any urgent inquiries to: josie.hart@botanicgardens.org for quicker assistance!


Thanks everyone!
