The extra time it is taking for us to set up and move around the irrigation infrastructure, reseed crops, and add extra plantings to our crop plan, is taking us away from other important tasks. We are unable to keep up with field edge mowing, and the raspberry patch needs weeding and mulch spread again. These are issues we are aware of but don't have the time to tend to. I am planning an event for members to join us in our efforts to save the raspberry patch: The Great Powisset Raspberry Rally. The idea is to give community members a chance to chip in and help out the farm during a particularly difficult year. Stay tuned for the official announcement.

Join us for the annual Barn Dinner on Sunday, August 14th. There is no cost to attend this but we do require registration as there is limited space in the barn.
