Our last week of the season is here and what a wonderful season it has been! We are so grateful to all of you for supporting the local farms that supply our produce, especially our primary farms, Willowbrook and Whipstone. Without Hope and Hilary at Willowbrook and Shanti and Cory (and their crew) at Whipstone, this CSA would not exist. I am so appreciative of the countless hours of planning, digging, planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packaging they spend throughout the year to bring each week’s share to our plates.

Thank you also to our supplemental growers that have brought so much variety throughout the season. All these local farmers are the lifeblood of our communities. They preserve our open spaces, protect our soil and water resources, encourage biodiversity, maintain the rural and agricultural roots of the area, and supply us with delicious, nutritious food. And we simply could not make our distribution work without the dedication and hard work of Jacob Rozum, who delivers all of our produce to the distribution sites. Thank you Jacob! Thanks also to our volunteers in Sedona and Cornville for distributing your produce each week. We couldn’t do it without them!

If you will be joining us again next season please reserve your share before November 15th. You can either use the online signup form or print out and return an Early Bird Contract. Please remember that we need to receive your $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your share.

Have a wonderful week. I hope to see you next season!
