Dear Folks,

We are so glad that you have signed up for the CSA at 77 H this year.  We would like to get a flyer sent out to other residents at the 77H.  We have call the building management; we have stopped and dropped off flyers with the concierge; but nothing seems to work. 

At one of our other drop off spots.  One of the folks who actually is in the CSA contacted the management and asked if she could have the flyers sent to other residents and the management requested copies from us and sent it out to all folks in the building.

So what we are asking - is there any of you folks who would be willing to contact the building management and ask them to send out a flyer or announcement of the CSA deliveries to 77H ?  We would be glad to supply the flyer if any of you would do it. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your support and help in this matter.

Dear Folks,

Thank you for joining the CSA for 2015.  If you clicked invoice in the check out and have not yet sent a check for the season, please send it to us as soon as possible - especially if you signed up for the whole season discount.  you will lose the discount if you do not pay up before MAY 15.

I will be sending separate status emails to everyone who owes money for the spring session or the whole season.  Please be looking for this email.

We are working hard to get all the vegetables planted right now.  We are picking a lot of asparagus and some rhubarb.  We are looking forward to the beginning of the season in June.

If you have any questions, please let us know. 

thanks,
