Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Farm and Garden
It’s been a rainy month but we’re still hard at work and trying to keep up with the soggy ground. Bring your valentine and join us for Friday and Saturday work days – what better way is there to celebrate than getting your hands dirty together?! Please see below for more information.
VOLUNTEER TIME & EVENTS:
- Friday, Feb 12th from 3:30-5:00pm at the Mayview garden. We will be recruiting community members to come out and then prepping new beds for spring planting. We’d love to have you but if you are planning to come please email Amanda (NutritionCoord@foodshuttle.org) so she can let you know if the ground is still too wet to work.
- Saturday, Feb 13th from 9am-12pm out at the Farm. If you are planning on coming please email Sun (Farm@foodshuttle.org) so that he can let you know if the work day gets cancelled for any reason.
FARMS & GARDEN BLOG
Keep up with what’s going on with our Farms & Gardens and PAR programs through the IFFS blog . This week Sun has posted a great description of his childhood and the life events that prepared him to become the incredible farm master and local food activist that he is today. Use this blog to check out weekly ripe recipes, find yourself in photos of weekly crew calls, hear from other volunteers, and stay up to date with activities at IFFS. Let us know if you’re interested in contributing to the blog!
LOCAVORE LUNCH – Every Wednesday!
Every Wednesday at noon we are holding local agricultural discussion groups at Farmhouse Pizza, 3011 Hillsborough St. in Raleigh. We will be serving a pizza made using some (hopefully soon to be all) local ingredients from NCSU's Farmers' Market. Please RSVP to Steve (firstname.lastname@example.org) so he knows many pizzas to have made. If you can contribute, he is asking for a $5 donation... if you can't afford the cost we’ll gladly cover you in return for good conversation! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. This week's topic will be pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, etc. We'll talk about the pros the cons and the risks involved.
We are still in need of hand-tool donations. We gladly accept new and/or lightly used equipment. Thanks to all who have responded.
If you have not filled out a volunteer form or have a friend who is interested in helping out please email Janet at RGSJRS@aol.com.
Hope to see you all out there!
Katherine, Sun, & Amanda
