The aim of O'k CSA is to explore and have fun sharing connections between garden-farming and art education, and the practice of ecological design and thinking.
O'k CSA is focused on creatively and intelligently, designing ways to live wisely and well, and that means not just learning the "HOW-to's", but also what it takes and then the doing of it. The focus of our work and passion is teaching, learning, experiencing, making art, community garden-farming and ecological education.
Hello Very O'k friends and families,
Welcome to the 2016 O'k CSA growing season!
It's that time of year again---the snow is piled HIGH and we're about to celebrate the beginning of the "Year of Monkey" according to the Chinese New Year. (More on monkey-biz below.) and it is, in fact, the beginning of our 2016 growing season.
THIS WEEKEND, I'm putting the list together of final seed ordering and hauling out my saved seeds to inventory them according to planting dates. I'll begin tucking seeds into soil starter mix in about 3 weeks, at the end of February for our O'k CSA garden-farms! So I need to have our membership list complete ASAP, so that I can have an accurate accounting of the quantity/orders for seeds. Which btw are always Non-GMO; and, organic, heirloom whenever possible--as well as, always grown with organic, and natural practices--including permaculture/perennial growing techniques for some of our food-producing crops.
In addition to breaking ground w. Levi and Brenda Meeuwenberg out at their Realeyes Homestead property for garden-farm site, this year's membership options have changed up a bit, as we suggested last fall that they may.
Here they are--NEW for 2016:
Please share our good news with others that you think may wish to join us as growers, members or sponsors of our community and neighborhood garden-farming CSA.
For any of you who ordered a Year of Monkey calendar, they are coming hot off the press a week from today and will be ready for pick-up and/or delivery right after the upcoming Seth Bernard and friends concert---which you are warmly invited to attend--on Saturday Feb. 13th in Traverse City--More info by clicking on here: Seth Bernard & Friends, Fundraiser for Permaculture Design Course.
That's all for now. Adios, and see you real soon!
