Be sure to come out for the Sept 10 workday, from 10am to noon. With all the rain we have been having, it is a jungle out there, and we expect to have a lot of weeds to pull and perhaps some surprising harvests. Remember to log in your reapings to the Farming Concrete notebook.

Also, if you missed the August workday and need to schedule a makeup, please contact Noreen Whysel at nwhysel@gmail.com.

Peach Picking Time

The annual Peach Picking party will take place two dates this year , July 30 and Sunday, August 14 from 4-6pm.

A Farming Concrete weigh station will be available to record the harvest. The peaches we collect should contribute mightily toward our federal grant weight goal!

Stay tuned for pictures!

UPDATE: The July 30 peach picking party totaled 25 pounds. Second date planned for August 14, 4-6pm. Unfortunately, someone saw renovation workers from 12 West 104th Street cutting down branches overhanging the property line. Sadly they did a careless job with a chain saw and some branches will need to be repaired. The Pruning committee is meeting at 11am on Sunday to repair the damaged limbs, so please take care when picking on the back side of the tree!
