Cold and Windy Work Day

IMG_1347The first “community work day” was a great success!  Despite the cold and windy weather, we accomplished our goal for the day:  clearing the one acre plot of unnecessary fencing material and lots of rusty, heavy, metal pieces.  We also got fence posts in place to raise the height of the fence.  All of this was followed by a delicious potluck lunch, lots of laughter, and a feeling of satisfaction about our efforts.

The following Saturday was equally chilly, so we focused our efforts on our shared space and cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen.  A warm and friendly coffee-and-doughnut chat broke up the morning’s tasks.  We’re off to a fantastic start!IMG_1330IMG_1392IMG_1326

Garden Plots

400dpiLogoDear Community Gardeners,

After a well-attended meeting of potential gardeners at the Cable Community Farm last week, we were able to figure out the garden plot sizes that will fit the needs of most of you.  The garden plots will come in three sizes:  5 X 30, 30 X 30, and 60 X 30.  You may have as many as you like.  And…due to our late start…all garden plots will be free of charge for the 2013 growing season!  There’s plenty of space for everybody, so it’s not too late to sign up.  On the website (www.cablecommunityfarm.org), under “Forms”, click on the “2013 Garden Plot Application Form”.
