Hello CSA members-
We hope you have been enjoying all of your vegetables and fruit and flowers so far this year. Now with some hot weather we can see about getting tomatoes and peppers coming at you soon.
A few of you have pointed out that our spring potluck never materialized- but we are going to try and play catch up now. Here are two opportunities to visit some farms coming up din August.
1) Summer CSA Potluck: Come on and all to Fields of Plenty (Clairmount between 3rd and the Lodge) on August 16 at 6 PM for a potluck and farm tour. Many of you visited this farm last year during its first year of operation and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how it as grown over the past 10 months. We’ll send more details on parking etc as the date gets closer.
2) Detroit Agriculture Network Tour: You can see some of the City Commons farms on 18th Annual Tour of Detroit Urban Gardens and Farms on August 5. This is a fundraiser for the Garden Resource Program- without which City Commons would not exist. Buffalo Street Farm will be a stop on the Eastside Bus Tour. On the Central Bus Tour, Food Field will be a stop and Fields of Plenty will be a roll by. The entire event is followed by a dinner of local food. You can see more details about this event and purchase ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.

Alice and the rest of the City Commons Crew
