The monkey in me, likes to begin the growing season w. fond memories of the fun-fun-fun of the work-work-work of planting and tending a garden and growing food for myself and others! While I may not be quite this flexible in 2016 as I was back in 2000, we still do our daily yoga in the gardens–once the snow takes leave!
A GREAT way to join in on the fun-work is to support and/or join our Very O’k CSA Cooperative—a community supported group of garden-farms right in the Traverse City–city limits!
And because of all of this monkey-bizness—the first five folks/families that sign up or renew their membership will also receive a “Year of Monkey” calendar that is coming hot of the press this week!
Here’s this year’s CSA Share info for you to consider: http://www.pennyokart.com/
