Receiving the gift of our farm share
By: Helen O'Brien (May 27, 2010)
We are beginning our 4th season with Webster Farm Organic's Salad Days? Things we love? We love the farmers, Net and Tam. We love their newsletter, carefully and thoughtfully created each week. Their weekly missive shares their relationship with their land and crops and how to identify what's in our bag:) We love the size of our farmshare, knowing many people who quit their farmshares when the huge quantities overwhelmed them. We love how it has changed the way we think about our own city land and what we put into it. We have turned a big (10 year in the making) compost pile the past three years and returned our own created soil to our garden. We have switched to organic fertilizers and weed control. We believe in local farmers and in safe food. Net and Tam's farm is a reflection of the relationship my father had with his land in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and what he taught us about stewardship.
