Red Kuri and Spaghetti squash are ready! And we will have Acorn, Delicata and Butternut in the next couple of weeks. Also, we have straw bales for sale. Use them to mulch your garden, it will conserve water and give your plants a warm bed to survive the fall and winter temperatures. And in the spring you will have fewer early season weeds to deal with! Arrange to split a bale with your neighbours if you don't need a whole one.

We are happy to report that we are now running two "checkouts" on Saturday morning to help move through the line quicker and we have been able to keep a selection of most of our produce on the table past 11am.

 
Here's what's fresh this week:

WORKBEES FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES!

The family-friendly workbees this summer will be like our regular workbees but also include special activities for kids--games and explorations in the garden, as well as some kid-sized garden work. Jillian Wheatley, our school garden coordinator will fearlessly lead the curiosity-inspiring fun with help from our summer intern and volunteers.
 
The activities are geared toward children 5-12. (younger children are invited to participate if accompanied by a parent.) Kids will learn about what's growing, pollinators, compost and all things farmy. Each session will be different so come as often as you can!

Parents (neighbours, grandmas, uncles or any other adult caregiver) should plan to stay on the farm during the session and join the fun.
 
DATES:
  • Wednesday August 26, 4:30-7:30PM. Workbee and Potluck at Loutet Farm.
PLEASE RSVP: jillian@ediblegardenproject.com
