Dear Farm Friends:
Our typical second summer seems to have been interrupted by cool winds the past couple of days, but don’t worry: The forecast calls for more warm weather this weekend. Just perfect for ripening up more of our tomatoes (which are already bursting off the vines) and cucumbers (which we are drowning in) and apples (coming on strong). It’s a great time to be out in the gardens and orchards at Alemany Farm, where we are having some of our biggest harvests of the year.
And it should be perfect weather for an special herb walk at the Farm. Please join us this Sunday, September 18 when herbalist Katie Delwiche will host a farm walk during which she will identify the medicinal herbs found at Alemany Farm and discuss their uses. The walk will begin at 10 am and will last for about 90 minutes. There will be a potluck lunch after the herb walk, followed by our usual workday. We hope you can join us for this unique event! For more details, please contact Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also: Mark your calendar for our Seventh Annual Alemany Farm Harvest Festival!
When: Saturday, October 8, 11 AM – 5 PM
