There is still room to sign up for the class so don't miss your chance to learn community building skills from Brian Baker who teaches adobe oven building in our community and beyond!

Calling All Volunteers!
by Twyla Teitzel  
.Our next volunteer orientation will be Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 6:30 pm.

We have a lot of upcoming volunteer opportunities:
Farmers Market:  Volunteers are needed every Saturday at our booth.  
American River Festival:  September 13 & 14.  A fantastic event with a limited number of volunteer spots available.
Gift bag construction: We give away goodie bags to the new owners when they sign up.  We are looking for someone (maybe a fun family project) to make these gift bags and stuff them with the samples our vendors provide to us.
Newsletter mailing: Some of our owners prefer to receive a hard copy of the Gleanings. We could use some help getting these newsletters sent out.
Sampling:  We love sharing our great food with our customers! It's always more fun to have someone handing out samples and telling our customers about the product.
Thank you., Twyla
