Well, 2012 went by quickly. It was another great season for the farm. We produced and distributed more than 12,000 lbs of produce, we tested out a new distribution methods, the Lynden Farmers Market went well, and we continue to see the interest in this project increase.
As we look ahead into 2013, a few things come to mind. We are now recruiting for our new CSA - a subscription service for locals to receive a weekly (or bi-weekly) share of the produce. We are offering this service to anyone in the community but also looking for individuals and churches to sponsor shares for families we've been working with over the years. We'd like to offer discounted subscription to up to 10 of these families. Please let me know if you'd like a share or would like to sponsor a share for someone else.
We are also looking for new land. This could be land for lease or by donation that we would use to expand the farm and other A Rocha projects. Ideally, we'd like to have a house where we can room interns and visitors from around the globe. Again, let me know if this might be something you'd have available near Lynden.
Looking forward to another great season.
