Fw: Garden Workdays - Columbia University

From: Sean
Sent on: Wednesday, May 6, 2009 11:34 AM
If anyone wanted to help out with some gardening, they are open to welcoming volunteers.  See below information if interested.  I won't be able to attend, as I'll be at the Dave Jacke Forest Gardening course at the Ashram.

Hi Sean,
 
Thanks again for calling. I really appreciate your insight and offer of support.
 
We will be working at the Grant Houses garden site behind building 430 W 125th St. on Saturday at 9:30am, constructing raised beds.
 
We are also having a workday at the Columbia Community Garden on Sunday started at 11am (see below). The garden is located in Pupin Plaza, in the northwest corner of the Columbia campus (inside the corner of W 120th and Broadway Ave.) adjacent to the tall building under construction. This will involve more hands-in-the-dirt work which might appeal to your permaculture group members.
 
We will not be planting at Grant so will not be able to utilize cover crops this weekend. I'm not sure if the Columbia garden could utilize cover crop seeds at this time though. Many seeds have already been planted at that site, but more are still being planted. Thank you very much for the offer.
 
On another note, if you think that any of your group members would be interested in joining a fall, 10-week CSA distributed at Columbia University, please forward the following information to them:
 
Dear Morningside Heights Community,
   With the arrival of spring and the planting season, its time to begin thinking about the wonderful fall harvest. We are pleased to announce that the Morningside Heights CSA will continue for Fall 2009, distributed at John Jay Hall at Columbia University. This is a 10-week CSA with Norwich Meadows Farm that starts in early September. The farm, located in upstate New York, is certified organic. If you would like to participate in the CSA, an individual share (1 ��� 2 people) costs $140 and a family share (4 people) costs $280. If you are interested or have any questions, please email morningsideheightscsa (at) gmail.com to obtain a sign-up sheet and learn about other available products. You can learn more about Norwich Meadows Farm at the following link: http://www.norwichmeadowsfarm.com/

Help support local farmers! Please spread the word!

Your CSA Coordinators,

Jess and Gus

 
Cheers,
Becky
