Hello Sharers! We’re still looking for help with our plant sale and other spring farm work. 

The plant sale kicks off on Saturday, May 19, from 10am to 3pm. As mentioned last week, we’ll be selling plants, greens, Stearns swag, AND there will be live music and face painting!

We still need volunteers on Saturday assisting customers and directing traffic (we found someone to help with face painting). I’ll train you quickly and you can count the time toward work hours). The sale continues on Sunday May 20 from 10-3, selling plants only. Check out the flyer, download a copy, and pass it along to your friends.

Also see the list of plants (it’s a big Google spreadsheet)

Update: Community Work Days

We have one more scheduled Community Work Day this Saturday, April 28, from 9 am-noon. Your time will count towards work hours, and there is no need to sign up. Show up as late as 11am and work until noon sharp, when we break for lunch. For more details, or if you have any questions, please check out our post or email me at farmer@stearnsfarmcsa.org. 

Look for an email from me next week about upcoming work hours.

Next, a reprise of last week’s requests:

Be our tractor repair expert

Mark Piercey, our dedicated tractor repair guy extraordinaire of many years, has started his own business and is making beautiful things. We are in need of a new tractor repair work-for-share to keep on our charming fleet of tractors moving.

We have two antique, gasoline powered Cubs (simple and fun, and pretty easy to work on) and a 33 horsepower diesel-powered Massey Ferguson. We have both realistic expectations and the budget to call in the professionals when necessary, but we need someone reliable for small repairs, maintenance, and troubleshooting. If you know someone who might interested in tinkering with tractors, pass along this info! If you are interested, please email me: farmer@stearnsfarmcsa.org.

Help us sell shares

We still have a small number of shares to sell, and about 30 yard signs that need to be displayed for the next couple of months.

If you have a yard on a busy street or in a neighborhood that gets lot of foot traffic, come grab a sign and show your Stearns Farm love by planting one for all to see! There is a pile of signs under the picnic table behind the greenhouse at the farm if you want to come grab one.

If you already have a sign stashed away, put that thing out!

Be well,
