Sign up NOW for Fairview Gardens Summer Season!

Now is the time, my friends. If you've been wondering if you want to buy a share of Fairview Gardens, wonder no longer. Just try it out for the next 4 months. There will be no going back, I warn you!

If you go for it (summer is THE BEST season), make sure you mention me 'cause I get a $25 gift certificate for every new recruit. Love that discount, I gotta admit. Consider it a contribution to my well-being :) and um, YOURS!

Summers are full of strawberries, tomatoes, apples, figs, cucumbers, nectarines, artichokes, avocados, cilantro, basil, onions, peppers, to name a few.... need I say more??

Here are the "deets" from Jen herself:

Tomorrow is the last pick up day for the CSA Spring Share. I wanted to say thanks for a great season, and I look forward to seeing/meeting you next season.

Since the summer season starts next week, please let people know that they should since up as soon as possible: online, by calling the office, or by paying at the stand. If unable to sign up before next week, continue to spread the word and let prospective members know that they will be reimbursed for the week(s) missed

The farm stand is open 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm.

  1. Summer is the best CSA season!!! We're trying out a new thing here, SLOVEG. We've been mildly disappointed with the other programs. We'll see how this goes.

  2. This is certainly on our list of "Things to sign up for" posted on our fridge. We're currently running very low on beets.

    If you haven't seen it already Netflix the movie... The Real Dirt on Farmer John. Link... http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi234422553/ A wacky and bizarre behind the scenes look at a successful CSA in Illinois.

  3. I hate it when I run low on beets :)

    Actually, I have discovered that roasted beets are pretty amazing.

    I don't have Netflix, but that movie sounds great. Just gotta figure out how else to get it... maybe a good Blockbuster might have it. Or you rent it for me and I watch it then?

  4. We just signed up for a CSA here in Bend (well, the farm is actually in Eugene - we don't grow too much here in the desert!) - we'll let you know how it goes! :)
