Seems like it might be of interest to those interested in CSA. Enjoy.

Thanks for posting that article, Rod. It was really interesting reading. In fact, I felt compelled to start reading it aloud to Timothy before I'd even made it that far into the text.

Lisa and I will go in for 1/2 a share as well. Do we need to fill out something on their website or drop off a check somewhere else?

Elizabeth,

My pleasure. There is a Peak Oil group here in Austin, by the way. I have not attended simply due to a hectic schedule since moving down from Chicago. From the web and meeting one of their members who kindly gave a guest lecture in one of my classes, I think what they are doing is worthwhile.

For example: http://www.crudeawakening.org/

At 8.5 shares of interest - we're closing in on at least 10! :) thanks to everyone who has expressed interest and helped spread the word.

Some of these questions have been answered - but anyway:

Re fruit: what Dusty said matches my experience. Last summer there were several rounds of delicious figs (from Hands of the Earth itself) and there were also occasional melons (from partnering with another farm, I think). The previous farmer had planted a small orchard that was unfortunately in an easement...when the utility company had to do work, out came all the trees. :( don't know if more have been planted.

Re other members/interested parties outside of Mueller: absolutely, if you know anyone that is already a member for whom Mueller would be convenient, that would be great information to share with the farmers.

Re signing up: If you want to be able to pick up your food at Mueller, please help consolidate/add to our group numbers, instead of signing up through the farm website. I am keeping track of interest through a spreadsheet I'll pass on to Hands of the Earth, and you can provide a check either at their upcoming presentation this Sat. Feb. 14 or drop it off with me if that's more convenient. (send me a pm for contact info.)

woo-hoo! at least 11 paid shares!

I hope that I have successfully contacted all interested parties either by email or by private message, to say either that I have you marked as signed up and paid, or to see if you would still like to join and pay. I'm hoping to have all checks in possession by Friday so I can take them to the farm and make everything final.

I would think that if people are still learning about this opportunity and want to sign up after that, that would be possible until the farm runs out of space.

If you think you have signed up and haven't heard from me, please send a message.

thanks,
lilyrose :)

The CSA delivery by Hands of the Earth Farm kicked off last Friday, March 27, (despite the hail!) and will last for 20 weeks. Fresh veggies will be delivered weekly, to 4116 Camacho Street, at about 5pm.

If you did not sign up for the current spring/summer season with Hands of the Earth, feel free to stop by, check out the veggies, meet a farmer, ask questions...Hands of the Earth does take a break in fall when they are between crops, but they will have a fall/winter season too, and hopefully Mueller will continue to be a satellite location.
