Hello neighbors and friends,

Spring is almost here and the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program of CVC Urban Farms will be back in full swing shortly. We are busy now preparing the land for planting and will be selecting varieties of vegetable and fruit crops soon for the next season.

Please join us for a short gathering this Sunday to help make plans for the year. We would like input from our subscribers from last year, as well as those that would consider getting fresh, affordable locally grown food weekly this season. Items we will discuss include pricing, service hours, and the new Brown Middle School site.

New CSA subsciptions will be on sale at the meeting, with disctribution of food beginning April 12th, or earlier (depending on how fast the ground warms up). Feel free to forward this message and invite others to attend. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday. –

Beecher Donnelly AND CVC Urban Farm

Saturday’s clean up/ BDCA Recruitment was a success!  The weather remained cool and the clouds held back the rain.  Our resident councilmembers came out to show more than support- Ceasar Mitchell and Cleta Winslow. My daughter had a wonderful time working within the community and on the farm.

Lydia is 7 and also had an opportunity to work with the video camera. She assisted with interviewing the volunteers; I’ll try to get a copy of the footage. I encourage the residents within our communities with children to get them involved. Bring your kids to the meetings, clean-up’s and any community event. We work for their future and the best way to raise active, concerned kids is to start by making them aware of the current concerns and how YOU are helping to make a difference. Believe me, I understand how hard it is to have kids come along, sit still and be quiet at meetings- but everyone of our community organizations with NPU-T are child friendly and filled with loving patient people who UNDERSTAND! 

Here are some of Lydia’s pictures:
