Join us May 8 for the last winter potluck

Our last "winter" potluck will happen next Friday 5/8. The potluck will feature a discussion about combating racism, perhaps involving a film. Especially regarding recent police violence demonstrations in our cities, it remains a very pertinent, essential and challenging topic to address. Anna Johnson and David Weisberger will host at 209 South Oak Ave Apt. 110. 6-8 p.m.

Workday May 2 - Construction and building improvement

The farm will have a workday this Saturday 5/2 from 1-5. We're trying to do some construction/building improvement related work. There may be other important work to trump that, but so far that's the plan. If you can come, please heads-up with Nate (515-231-2002) by Saturday morning so he can make plans for which projects to tackle. Especially if you're handy . . . . but we'd love to have you any way you are!

Next farm potluck

On Friday April 10, 6-8pm we will be discussing citizen Science and on-farm research! As usual it is a potluck.
I think the farm will be presenting on the on-farm research projects we participated in with Practical Farmers of Iowa last year, and what we have planned for the coming year. Also learn about other citizen science projects that we can all participate in, and give input into projects you think we should be doing on the farm.

This one is at Elena's house:
2615 Aspen Rd. Unit 5
Ames, IA 50010
