Fall on the Farm
Fall is upon us at Green String and our farmers, interns, and store folk alike are easing into the next phase of the year. As some of our fields are being cover cropped, others are being seeded with the brassicas and other vegetables that will adorn your refrigerators and counters in the coming months: celery, cabbages, choys, mizuna, arugula, radishes, turnips, and beets. In the coming weeks, you can expect chicories to start coming into the farm store.
We would like to thank and usher forward Lucy O'Dea, Green String's Farm Store Manager, who will be leaving us at the end of this week. Lucy has brought tremendous energy and motion to the farm and her spirit, vision, and friendship will be greatly missed. We would thus like to introduce to you our new Farm Store Manager, Lora Kincaid, who you will all recognize from our current full time store staff. Lora is eager to pick up the torch and continue to serve the health and vitality of our community.
As many of you may know, Green String is a working, educational farm with a thriving internship program. Interns work, live, and learn with us and our head farmer Bob Cannard during a three month program, which emphasizes sustainable, "beyond organic" farming methods. The winter program starts November 29th and we will be accepting applications through October 15th.
If you would like to book a private tour, please contact Green String Farm Store Manager, Lora Kincaid at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 707-778-7500
