We are excited to be on Share #4 of our CSA deliveries, but our volunteers have been hard at work in the garden since May 1st! They have been transplanting, weeding, harvesting, washing crates, spreading biodynamic preps, laying down row cover, picking up row cover and moving things from one spot to another! Our volunteers commit to working from May 1 until October 31st, five hours a week. Some drive over from Jackson and some live in Teton Valley. All of them have full lives and yet are taking the time to help feed our community.
Workshares bring to the farm a fun energy that I cherish. They are eager to learn about farming, and what it takes to grow in the Tetons. I get to cook lunch for them every shift, and I love this part of my job. Everyone is ready for a meal after 5 hours of labor, and it is a treat to sit down together and enjoy the reason we are all working together....food!
I also am grateful for the human connections workshares allow us to have on the farm. We work with about 25 volunteers a year, and we've been at it about 15 years. That's about 375 volunteers! WOW....no wonder names elude me! Now that I'm seeing that number, I'm really surprised! The thing about a number like 375 in a community the size of ours, is you probably know someone who has volunteered at the farm. Workshares are working hard, to feed the Cosmic Community. If you do know or meet a workshare, give them a hug, buy them a coffee, tell them your favorite vegetable, share your gratitude. Food brings people together, share in the human connection!
Thank you workshares, you are making a difference in our community!! You are doing important work!
Featured Meat of the Week: Cosmic Chorizo
We have been making chorizo for years now, but our new butcher has made the best blend yet. It is a combination of Cosmic Beef and Cosmic Pork. It is spicy, although my kids will eat it mixed into burritos. It comes linked, so it easy to grill. Burritos with chorizo is one of our favorite ways to use our veggies! Try the recipe for Dale's Burrito Sauce on the Garlic Curl page with Cosmic Chorizo!
