The Harvest this week is going to be filled with the exotic Kohlrabi, fresh Swiss Chard, crispy Scallions, flavorful Radishes and Turnips, and some tasty Green Garlic. Summer Heat is coming and is bringing in the flowers in the PYO Field. There will only be certain parts of the PYO Field that will be open for picking this week. The sections that are open will have a white wooden sign with the name of the plant on it. If it does not have the white wooden sign in front of the section, please do not pick them! Also, please be responsible with the amounts that you pick. There are other shareholders that want to enjoy the PYO Field too.
Dates for Classes:
Attend every weekend or just try out one class! Classes will be held rain or shine, and class may be modified in the event of rain. Bring a yoga mat, block, strap, and water bottle. If you do not have yoga gear improvise with a beach towel or blanket, and a belt, necktie or bathrobe tie.
To reserve your spot or for any questions, please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org
