January on the farm:


Howdy folks. Thus far January has been pleasantly quiet on the farm. Last winter I spent many days snowshoeing around Waltham Fields Community Farm with my shovel in hand to dig out our greenhouses and out buildings. Our mild winter is also very helpful in helping me visualize what the fields will look like come summer  (I hope I am not tempting fate by putting this in writing).  As I am plugging away planning for the 2016 season I want to let you know some things that you can expect. We will be growing the same high quality crops you have come to expect from Powisset Farm. You will also continue to get a great return value on your investment in the Powisset CSA when you purchase a CSA share.


For folks who are interested in splitting a CSA share but who do no yet have a share partner I'm excited to announce the launch of a Google Doc to help folks who want to split a share for the 2016 season connect with one another. Please follow the link below and add your name and email address to the sheet. As names are added to the sheet please contact one another to see if you will be a good share match. Once you have found a person to split a share with please remove both your names from the Google Doc and sign up for a share together.

Here are some shots from last week's kitchen workshops, including a Make & Take: DIY Skincare Products and a Whole Grain Bread workshop. Thank you to all who participated in these fun classes and to the instructors who led them - Nicole Lewis & Tod Dimmick! We will be holding several future DIY Skincare Workshops in Feb & March for those of you who could not make it last week. 

Thank you to those who came out this weekend in the not-so-great-weather for our Ecological Walk (Winter Walk & Warmth) and our Cookbook/Kitchen Utensil Swap. Anne Innis will be hosting another walk on Saturday, Feb. 6th. On Sunday, we collected a bunch of cookbooks and kitchen utensils which, this week, will find a new home through New Life Refurnishing in Medfield and More Than Words in Waltham, 2 amazing non-profit organizations. 

We still have space in our
Fit on the Farm: Nutrition & Cooking class tomorrow (Wed) night. Join us as we dispel the myths of fad diets with Registered Dietitian and Powisset regular, Amy Boyce. After her lecture, she will show us how to make chicken provencal, roasted delicata squash with farro and feta, green salad and radicchio.

Next week, Nicole Lewis will be leading 2 Vision Board Workshops - Tuesday, Jan. 19th and Saturday, Jan. 23rd. What might you ask is a Vision Board? A vision board is a board or paper with displayed images that represent whatever you want - a goal, an intention, a hope or dream...or simply a word sing visualization, magazine clippings and coloring pages. 

And, we've continued to add more classes this week. On Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, we will be hosting Nourishing Soups & Stocks and both Feb. 6th & 16th we will be learning how to make donuts! The 16th class is geared towards kids since it is Vacation Week but big kids are welcome too!
