Friends,
 
FoodCycles is getting down to the first of its early summer planting in an outdoor field (half an acre of an acre; event info http://bit.ly/1a7xAo).  Can anyone generously spare any shovels, wheel barrows, rakes and trowels (or other equipment) to help with bed setup, weeding thistles, transplanting cucumber, eggplant, tomato, lettuce, basil, pepper seedlings and with direct seeding?  Or loan these tools to us for a short while?

Volunteer Louis Fliss donated his childhood family heirloom wheelbarrow (about 1.5 ft high) to FoodCycles and a mat for volunteers to comfortably kneel on.

 
As always feel free to drop in and break bread with us (I know I’m bringing honey bread with cooked grains and corn dill sandwich bread over the 4 days of potlucking).  We’d be happy to have you!
