Just a few days left to sign up for the FULL Summer 2018 season
It won't be long now before Summer 2018 season gets underway, so we wanted to drop a quick note to make sure everyone is on the same page and to remind you that you have only a little while left to sign up before the season begins.

Speaking of beginning, CSA pick-ups start Tuesday, June 5. Please be sure to check our website or your online account so you are aware of the pick-up day and times for your pick-up site.

To participate in the full 20-week season, you must sign up by May 25 .

There are many perks of membership in our CSA. We offer small, medium, large and customizable shares. Those picking up at our farm receive a $15 discount. Returning members receive a 5 percent discount.  There are no deadlines for signing up - you may sign up at any time during the season for a pro-rated cost - and just think of all those delicious, fresh veggies you will receive each week.

Friendly reminder
If you signed up early and have not yet chosen a pick-up site, or need to switch your pick-up site due to schedule changes, a move, a new job or other reasons, please let us know of your choice before the season begins.
Tentative new site
We have a potential new site at Iron Oak Fitness, a Cross-Fit gym  in Solon. The pick-up times will most likely be Tuesdays from 5:45 - 7 p.m. If you're a member or live nearby Iron Oak Fitness, this is your site! Please let us know soon so we can fill up this location and make it a reality.
Reminder: May 13 is Mother's Day
Our partner, Lowe's, is celebrating mom too! 
Now is the time to...  Celebrate Mom!
Moms dry the tears, Moms make the scary things go away. Moms take care of us when we're sick and they help us with our homework. 
They know when we are feeling down and they know when we are not telling the truth. Moms are... awesome. 
Say thanks to all the Moms in your life! Stop in at Lowe's Greenhouse & Gift Shop at 16540 Chillicothe Road in Bainbridge or order online - Mother's Day flowers are just a click away at www.LowesGreenhouse.com. 
Local food, farming, environment in the news
We have so many things we'd like to share with you regarding the local food movement, what is affecting the food you eat and the world around us, and much, much more, but we don't want to make our newsletter any
longer. So, we include links to articles you may find interesting. Here are a few. If you run across any articles you find interesting and think other members would be interested in reading, feel free to send us the link for inclusion in an upcoming newsletter.
(Between the regular business hours of 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Saturday ONLY PLEASE!)
