Return to Big Salad

If you missed out on the Big Salad compost event in August, or if you just want to experience the decompositional magic again, you’re in luck. This Sunday 10/7 from 12-4pm, the Big Salad is back. Join master composter David Buckel (and some hardworking earthworms) to turn kitchen scraps into the nutrient-rich soil that grows our food. There’s a lot to be done, and many hands are needed, so come on down and get dirty while putting in some volunteer hours.

This Sunday there will also be a Repurpose Bin at the farm. Please bring one item you don’t use but that you know somebody else might use, put that in the bin and see if you find one item to take home.

Don’t forget to email with updates on your hours. CSA members should complete volunteer hour requirements by the end of November, so get cracking.

Help AV Weather the Storm, Pick-Up Rescheduled

Here’s the latest from Ian:

Hey Friends,

Due to the storm and now the evacuation order for Red Hook, we are not holding the CSA tomorrow. Distribution will be Tuesday evening from 3:30pm – 7:30pm.

In terms of support for us: We will be weatherizing the office tomorrow from 10am – noon and could use 2-3 people to help with that. Additionally we anticipate a significant cleanup of the farm following the storm and will need volunteers Tuesday anytime 9am-7:30pm.

Thanks to each of you for your incredible dedication to this big beautiful community.

-Ian and the whole AV team

If you would like to volunteer either tomorrow at the AV office or Tuesday at the farm, please just show up and pitch in.
