thanksgiving time

Dear friends,

thank you all for all the ways you have helped the Mustard Seed Community Farm this season! We are really grateful to you all!

Winter is coming, and we at the farm are not fully prepared for it, so i thought i would ask to see if anyone was able to help out during the thanksgiving holiday time.

hi friends,

i haven't typed up all the meeting minutes yet, but i thought i better hurry up and send out important dates so they can get on your calendars. if other folks want to come out on other saturday afternoons, let me know.

You could print this out and put it on your fridge!!!

Sat Sept 2: afternoon work day 1-4pm, at the farm

9/15-9/17 Fri evening -sunday morning, SUGAR CREEK Midwest Catholic Worker Gathering - eastern iowa, near Dewitt or Clinton. This is very fun and good for the whole family.

WE FINALLY GOT RAIN! Between 3 rain events the past few days, we got 1.35 inches of rain. This is the largest rainfall (in a 36 hour period) that we have gotten all year. This information expresses that: 1. This has been an incredibly dry year and 2, we are incredibly grateful for this rain. it might have saved a few of our crops from complete destruction.
