But before our hiatus, I want to make sure to tell you, we are doing exciting things here at Lake Divide Farm and there are lots of ways to be a part of it. There are two things I want to be sure you know:
- This is a great time of year to sign-up or renew your farm membership. Find more details here. The basics? Open an account with us, get a bonus, and use your account to purchase produce with us at any of our markets. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
- We are hiring! We have 3 full-time and 3 part-time positions opening up for the 2019 season. You can find details about the jobs on our website here. If you or anyone you know may be interested, please send us an email or pass along the information.
The shortest day of the year is upon us again; the great dip in the great light. This winter solstice falls on the coming Friday and coincidentally, the full moon will be gathering about that day as well. For us, the darkest night of the year, represents the beginning of the next growing season. From here on out, daylight hours will accumulate with each trip around the sun. Towards the end of January, our plants will begin to pick up the pace again, packing on biomass for our consumption. For now, we will enjoy the full moon and we hope you do too. Thank you so much for all your support this year. We couldn't do what we do without you.Enjoy any time you get to spend with family and friends and let us all head into the new year together with high hopes and bright faces!
To the FUTURE!
