November Newsletter

It's hard to believe, but the 2018 farming season is complete! We had so many community members come out to the farm and take part in farming this season, and we feel fortunate to offer that opportunity in our neighborhood.

We are transitioning from summer staff to fall staff, which means it's much quieter in the office. We dearly miss our summer interns and seasonal staff already!

As you may already know, the annual Give to the Max Day is in under one week. While we appreciate gifts during any part of the year, donating during Give to the Max Day truly amplifies your giving-- every donation made through our page on November 15th gives us another chance to win prizes ranging from $500-10,000 from GiveMN!

It has been a season of learning and growing, and we look forward to continuing that process next year.


Frogtown Farm Staff
Up on the Farm
The farm is finally asleep for the winter. Every inch has been cover-cropped with winter rye and clover. Without the fields of produce, our perennial alleys are very visible now!

Some of the other winterizing we did includes putting tree protectors on the trees in our orchards, mulching bare ground, and preparing machinery for storage.

Thank You
We could not have had such a successful farming season without our farm staff!

Skyler, our field coordinator, and Sharí and Nura, farm assistants, have wrapped up their time on the farm this season. We're grateful for their hard work, constant smiles, and willingness to go the extra mile for Frogtown.

While she will remain in the office through December, we would also like to thank our outgoing Farm Manager, Iman Mefleh. She has done a tremendous job increasing the health and productivity of our soil, managing a farm team, and keeping the entire community involved in the farming process. Iman, your presence in the office and in the field will be missed by all of us!
Give to the Max Day
We've set the bar high, but we believe in the power of community coming together to make something amazing happen. We're raising $5,000 this Give to the Max Day to convert a shipping container into on-site cold storage.

Curious as to why this is so important? Follow along with our "8 Days, 8 Ways" series on Facebook to learn about the ways cold storage will improve the way our community is served!
