Past + Upcoming Events at Powisset



Wow...how things have changed over the past week! We went from spring in January to 2 snow storms within days. Powisset now looks like a very different place. Despite all of this, we have had some fun events over the past week and have several coming up, including some activities to keep you and the kiddos busy during school vacation week. We enjoyed the beauty of the snow and the farm during our "Winter Walk & Warmth", thanks to Anne Innis (see below) and will be holding another one on Saturday, March 5th.

And Tuesday was "Sylvia's Art Bar" (a mixed media version of Paint Nite) where 8 of us created these works of art. I know that many of us didn't think we had a creative bone in our body, but look how cool and different each one turned out. We hope to have Sylvia Quiroga back here in the summer for another workshop.
And looking forward...Get your Saturday started with Flow on the Farm with Yoga at 10am and for those who have not quite realized that you need to make a plan for Valentines Day, what could be more romantic than looking at the stars on a frigid night? Join us on Saturday at 6pm for Astronomy Night. Please make sure to check our Facebook page for updates with regards to the weather and cloud cover.  

Some of you had signed up for our Time to Make the Donuts class on Saturday which was disrupted due to a power outage here at Powisset, so on Tuesday, Feb. 16th at 10am, we are trying again. This class is geared towards kids, but big kids can come too! And on Saturday, Feb. 27th, we are holding another one geared towards big kids, but little kids can come too! And lastly, Wednesday, Feb. 17th, get ready to make pizza in the Powisset kitchen followed by some good ole fashioned board games at Slice & Dice: Pizza & Board Games...we will have some board games here, but feel free to bring your own.


News from the Farm:

Pop-up farm stand at Powisset!

We are launching a self serve pop-up farm stand starting next Wednesday, February 17th. The pop-up farm stand will be run out of the root cellar under the barn.

Available produce will include:
- butternut squash
- carrots
- beets
- onions
- shallots
- potatoes
- celeriac
- storage radishes

The stand will be set up as self -serve. Both cash and checks will be accepted though I'd encourage folks to bring a check as change may not be available. All produce will be pre-bagged and priced by the bag. More in depth instructions will be posted in the pop-up farm stand. The stand will be open Wednesday - Sunday 9am to 5pm, until we run out of veggies.

There will also be pies and pork products available for sale in the freezer. In addition there will be maple syrup for sale in the stand.

I will post a price list in next weeks blog for all items that will be available in the stand while you shop.



CSA sign-ups have been opened to the waitlist. If you are a returning member and wish to signup but have not yet done so please feel free to e-mail me at zporter@thetrustees.org and I will send you the sign-up link. If you are looking for a share partner to split your share I have created a Google doc to help match folks up.
