First meeting attended, like it so far.
Hey Paul, Can't make a scythe workshop this weekend. Just too many things pulling in different directions this weekend.
Hey, thanks for posting that scythe video. I'll keep an eye out for anything that might fit the bill as mowable for a workshop.
Hey, Paul! That sounds great. I'm in Framingham and really looking forward to an event that's close to where I am living. I'm interested in your small orchard. I would love to help you out whenever, Especially during harvest/pruning/winter-prep (if you ever need it)! See you in a couple of weeks. :)
Great, thank you so much, Paul! Way to kick off the permie re-ignition with such a generous and fun event.
Cage free chicken/eggs and grass-fed beef is healthy and expensive stuff.
I would be happy to give you or anyone some of the fruits as they ripen. Most of the plants have only been in the ground for 1yrs so the harvest will be tiny. Another idea that pop in my head is the possibility of using this biweekly meetup as a distribution point to CSA-like pickup of eggs/etc that you produce. If others are interested.
How was the Food Forest meeting for you.
