Clean Up...Queen City Farm...

Just in from Rod McCallum....
Whistle While You Work...
We have spent some time behind the scenes for the last few weeks but we are ready to get our hands a little dirty. This Friday, July 27th we will be working on the farm site from 3-5 pm. We will pickup trash, clear some overgrowth and finish with some pizza. Meet at 194 E Utica Street at 3 pm. RSVP by sending an email. Please include the number of people and a list of landscaping tools (trimmers, saws, chipper, etc.) you will bring. See you there!

I am not sure of the progress of this project but I love it!

Has anyone considered going to the leaders of the various soup kitchens to get a standing buy order for the produce grown?

Another idea is to go to one of the grocery chains to see if they would provide for space in their stores to feature produce from here. Hell if they can give Bud or Miller 30 sq feet of space, they could do the same for "Fresh and Local" produce.

This seems like an odd time to get people to come out and help. Many of us have 9-5, M-F jobs. Wouldn't a weekend day be more likely to generate volunteers, or does QCF know something I don't?

What is the actual progress? Whose property is being volunteered on?
