Newsletter for Week 7 of Winter CSA 2022
Only 1 more week of Winter CSA after this one - then onto Spring 😮!!!
I will start by saying that this is the SECOND time I am writing this entire newsletter this week. After 4 hours of putting this together yesterday I went to publish it and everything got lost. I wanted to cry 😭😭! I almost decided to scrap this week's newsletter all together, as losing 4 hours of work is heartbreaking, but I put my big-boy pants on, and realized that this newsletter is a very important mode of communication and many of you thoroughly enjoy it, so here goes round #2! Hopefully it's as good as the first! 🤣
Well everyone, I hope you are doing absolutely wonderful and you have been enjoying your CSA through 6 weeks so far! I can't believe there is only 1 week left after this week and then we are on to Spring!
There is a lot to talk about this week and plenty of exciting announcements down below. We have announcements regarding Ahavah Community Initiative, our CSA memberships, a new farmer's market we are starting, classes, the nursery grand opening and more! See below and enjoy this week's newsletter!
REMINDER:👉 Every week we will be sending out this newsletter on Monday/Tuesday and every Thursday we post to the blog and to the Ahavah Community Facebook Group all the details of your bag contents, the extras available for purchase and what to expect to be available for Market-Style members.
👉Please see the weekly updates below including a word from Farmer Yosef, some educational articles, announcements, changes, interviews, highlights and more.

WORD FROM YOUR FARMER:
Hello my dear friends and FaRmily ❤! This week my "Weekly Update" video has a few special announcements and some VERY important info that I felt would be important for all to hear - so, I've also sent this out directly and I'm asking everyone to take a few minutes to watch. Yes, 9 minutes is a lot of your time to ask, but there's a lot happening and we need your help (or you can skip to the 5:45 minute mark for an important conversation about Ahavah Community Initiative, and how you can help) -- Love you all, Yosef.
0:00 - Introduction and recap of last week, the harvest coming up and growth on the farm. 0:50 - Come see the farm! 2:03 - Storytime and activity with Ms. Tracy! 3:03 - Nursery & Garden Center OPENING Announcement! 3:50 - Farmer's Market Announcement! 5:45 - Ahavah Community Initiative
Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization and we couldn't do it without them... but we need more help! We need help with so many things, things like:
Harvesting, washing and prep.
General farm cleanup
and more...got a skill you want to share? Let us know!
Volunteering is Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4PM.
Please let Jessie know you are interested, she will send more information and necessary paperwork, and we will welcome you with open arms!
