workday and biodynamic talk - NOTE NEW LOCATION FOR BIODYNAMIC WORKSHOP - 1626 Burnett in Ames

thanks everyone for all your wonderful help, support, and company at our fun-raising event this past saturday! i think we all had a lot of fun and we made about $2,500 to help put new roofs on our buildings and hopefully help the farm to clinic program get up and running this year.

just to let you know about 2 upcoming things at the farm -
april 23 workday
tomorrow, saturday, we'll be planting all day and could use any help. there's a morning shift - 9-noon, a potluck lunch, and an afternoon shift 1-5. it should be a lovely day, the fruit trees are in bloom and it's beautiful on the farm. There's a lot to plant (and there might be a few weeds to hoe also) and we'd love to see you.
