October TUF Snapshot

 

 

From The Executive Director

Thanks to everyone who attended FarmFest 2017! It was great to see both long-time supporters and new faces.
 
Here are some of the highlights:

  • 320 in attendance and 110 volunteers
  • Storybook Farm with the Denver Public Library was a hit
  • Build a Fairy Garden, build a salad, and make a pizza were very popular
  • Oscar Blues donated beer, Mayfair Liquors donated wine, Tom Linzmeyer created and printed our FarmFest poster, and Hinman’s Bakery donated cookies
  • Jesse Cornett gave a fantastic performance

A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers including the 4H kids, the TUF kids, their parents, our board members, and all who helped out. This was a successful event because of you.
 
Please join us for these events in October:

  • October 13 from 6 pm to 8pm Candy Crawl at Northfield
  • October 14 from 11 am to 2 pm Wildlife Refuge Day at the Arsenal
  • October 28 from 10 am to 1 pm Boo on the Bluff at BLNC

We hope to see you soon at the Farm,
Mike

Fresh Produce Available

We still have lots of fresh lettuces and greens, basil and herbs for you. They will be available through the fall and winter!  Imagine a fresh mixed salad of a variety of green and red leaf lettuces, mizzuna, kale, arugula, spinach and Swiss chard, grown without pesticides or herbicides. Stop in during our new open hours (see below). We will have tomatoes for a short period of time as the season is closing.

 


New Fence Construction

A new fence for the Community Garden is due to start construction in Oct/Nov. I can’t tell you how excited Tomato Girl is; I am still squealing in joy too much to talk about it fully. We have a lot of work ahead of us to eliminate the pests; 2018 looks very promising!
