July is for Pulling Weeds!

Come volunteer at your farm!

July is a time for growing.  Growing plants, growing weeds, growing to-do lists, growing desire to go swimming more....growing a little more tired and a lot more excited about all the crops still to come! In order to keep things rolling, we've got to keep on top of these crazy weeds! Come help us pull weeds and let the plants do all the growing!

Drop In!
This friday: 2-5pm and Saturday from 9-12:30!  
Drop in for an hour, or stay the whole time!  We'll show you what are weeds and what are vegetables and crawl around in the dirt side-by-side! 

Any questions, please contact: meryl at: mlatronica@ttor.org

I hope to see you in the fields!


What's in the share this week:

in the barn: lettuce, carrots, fennel, cukes, summer squash/zucchini,  cabbage, kale, popcorn
in the fields: fava beans, snow peas, dill
flower garden to open soon....


Choose Fresh & Local License Plate!

How awesome would it be to drive around with a license plate that not only supports Massachusetts farmers but also looks great and spreads the word about local farming? New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Mass Farmers Markets are launching a specialty license plate to support new farmers, farmers’ markets, and a vibrant Massachusetts food economy. Be an early adopter and supporter of the local food system in Massachusetts by signing up for a Choose Fresh & Local license plate.

Register today to be one of the first 1,500 to get a plate and help us get them on the road! You will even get to select your own license plate number (100-1600) or bid for a low number! We're over a third of the way to our goal, and you can help us get there. Visit our website to find out how it works, or to sign up for your plate today. E-mail info@massfoodplate.org with any questions.
