Hello members, We look forward to visiting John's farm this Saturday.

Members of the Core group will be there, and we hope you can join us.

Volunteers are welcome to help with set up, parking and to pick strawberries for a shortcake desert.

A state park- Kittatinny Valley is nearby with wonderful trails and camp sites available. This year we are also asking for volunteers to help pick peas for an hour or two prior to the start of the farm visit picnic. Volunteer days-

I know there are many people who would like to come out to lend a hand and I certainly can use the help. On Sundays during the delivery season we will have volunteer days. These will be to help with harvesting labor intensive crops like peas, beans, garlic and onions. For these volunteer days members should notify me directly by e-mail of their intention to attend. Please send me an e-mail during the week prior to the event and not weeks or months ahead. kruegerjohn@earthlink.net
