  • It's the 8th week of Summer Vegetable Shares

  • EOW Vegetable members @ The Office Market, Dianne Dr, Transformation Center pick up boxes this week.

  • This week MES boxes = LEUCC You will find chicken (2=full shares, 1=half shares) and eggs (both full & half shares = 1 dozen each. The hot weather has affected the quantity of eggs the hens are laying. The cooler nights and lower humidity should help. We will catch up the other dozen for full shares when quantity gets back up where it should be. Let me know if you have any questions.) If you also have a vegetable share - make sure you take both boxes.
  • Next week (#4 for July) MES boxes will be for Richland Center & Dianne Dr.
