We finally got some good rain this last week and it really freshened things up. Our CSA season ended until October so there will be more veggies available for our farm stand and for us to eat. Seven members of our community left us this week and new people will be arriving in the next couple weeks. That is one of the hardest things to get used to about the farm. People are constantly coming and going. There are a core group that are here longer term, but many of them will not be here for our entire year. Perhaps a post on farming and community is brewing.
Here’s some of the places I will be traveling in the months to come…
- New Baptist Covenant Regional Meeting in Norman, OK this Thursday and Friday
- Market Grower’s Symposium at Home Sweet Farm in Brenham TX September 17-18
- Panel discussion on environmental sustainability at Texas Lutheran University with the Center for Servant Leadership in September.
- ELCA’s Ethics of Eating event at WHRI October 22-25
