An Introduction

Hey there,

Just for clarification, this is not Alice posting. It’s Derek, one of the farm’s interns. Hi. Welcome to my first entry regarding my time on the farm. As a bit of an introduction, I’m going into my second year at Luther College this coming fall. I’m an English major there. At the farm, I focus on the kale, as all interns get to choose a crop to study. Included in this post is a photo of the kale. As you can see, we’ve got quite a few varieties, such as winterbor, scarlet, and dinosaur kale. You’ll hear more on kale in future posts.

summer events and strawberries


Dear Friends,

Our summer potluck season has started. we have had a great time with all of you who have come out the past few weeks to join us. We have a pretty full schedule of fun events, food sharing, interesting discussions, volunteer and community building opportunities. most of our events this summer are on saturdays, but please notice the few friday or sunday things. we are also having a farm class on wednesdays - call or text alice if you are interested in participating in that.

this weeks veggies and meet the interns


each of the interns chose a vegetable to learn about and be responsible for. so no, we do not have cucumbers or melons ripe yet.

Sorry - no strawberries this week!

hi everyone,

NO STRAWBERRY PICKING THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 4.

my apologies! the strawberries fooled me and they won't be ready for
picking this sunday.
probably the first time we will be open for extra pickers will be next
saturday at our summer kick-off (Sat June 10, 4-7pm).

POTLUCK this SATURDAY, June 3: Philosophy of the Catholic Worker Movement.
if you want to read up in advance for the discussion, or just do a
little research to see if you would be interested in coming, check out

hi friends,

Our season schedule is not totally figured out, but we do have some dates set and we have a potluck coming up this saturday. I am sending our rough draft so that you are able to have a few days warning for this week. the more elaborated and decisive schedule will be following soon. the bold events are sure things, and the tba-s could change. We are trying to have one event a month that is more kid friendly than talking about serious issues. these are from 4-7pm. All summer events are at Mustard Seed Community Farm - 366 W Ave.
