As event dates are known they can be found on our website in the “Calendar” section. Our newsletter will also remind CSA members of these events. Ideally a separate reminder notice may be sent also about various activities and events to our CSA members.
Farm Work Parties/Open Houses
These are scheduled workdays or open houses that are completely voluntary. The Spring Work Party is in May. The Summer Work Party is in July. The Fall Work Party is in September. Usually these include some optional farm work, snacks, refreshments, live music, wagon rides, tours of the farm, networking with other CSA members, and having fun. Family and friends are welcome to come too. Usually we encourage some volunteer members to sign up for “Set up” and “Clean up” chores for work parties, if possible, so less of the burden falls to our hard-working farm crew on Sunday, their day off.
The actual dates will be announced in the Aug. or Sept. newsletter. Check the “Events” calendar for class descriptions and current dates.
Hands-on demonstration of how to can, freeze, and dehydrate tomatoes and some other produce. Helpful resources will be available for your review. (usually in Sept.)
Kid Farm Days
Activities may include an edible farm walk, making butter and cheese, and learning about farm animals and vegetables through a variety of games, songs, & arts/crafts. There may be one or two of these scheduled throughout the summer. Keep an eye on newsletters and the Event Calendar for more information. Space will be limited, so sign up early.
Kid Farm Hikes (all ages are welcome!)
We may have guided monthly exploratory walks around Tantre Farm. We’ll use all our senses as we take an approximately 30-45 minute hike and explore the farm’s fields, wetlands, and forest. These will be announced in our newsletters.
Interactive Cooking Days
Great tips for cutting, storing, and using the produce from that week’s share are offered in an interactive class for members. Our culminating activity is a meal created by participants out of produce from the share box, which we consume with great pleasure. Check the “Events” calendar for class descriptions and current dates.
Other Possible Events
Cider Press/Apple Juice Day, Herb Talks, and Soap Workshops, Pumpkin Day, etc. Please let us know if you’d like to help out with ideas, can coordinate activities, or know someone who can lead an event. Watch newsletters and website for details.
