Eden's Organic Garden Center/CSA Farm is calling for volunteers to help them cover the crops to protect them from the airplanes dropping poison.
Here is the request:
CALLING ANY AND ALL VOLUNTEERS!!
What do you do when the State / County decides to douse your farm with pesticides? You have a party!! A cover the crops party that is!
The city was unable to fly over last night - oh darn - but has scheduled to resume Sunday night. That gives us time to get more things done here beforehand.
Bar-M-Ranch Grass-Fed Beef has graciously offered to bring tarps over here to combine with the plastic I have in an effort to get our crops covered before the now scheduled aerial spraying TOMORROW night! We'll spread it out over the actively growing, and now blooming, melons, squash, tomatoes and peppers.
He's bringing (grass fed) roast beef for sandwiches for us for lunch (and will pick up yummy organic Fresh Life Foods bread). You can byob or I'll have ice tea and water.
I expect this to take us no more than 2 hours with enough help (6 or so people working in teams).
NOTE TO ASTHMA or OTHER CHEMICALLY SENSITIVE FOLKS -
It rained pretty heavy out here last night clearing the air nicely, and I don't seem to smell the aqualure 20 20 that was used in the back neighborhoods anymore today. However, if you are at risk for respiratory problems, please bring a mask. I don't want anyone getting sick like I did Thursday night.
TIME - 10AM SUNDAY MORNING
WHERE - Eden's Organic Garden Center/CSA Farm
WHY - SAVE THE CROPS FROM POTENTIAL SPRAY WITH PESTICIDES
PLEASE RSVP SO WE HAVE ENOUGH FOOD/DRINKS/PLATES, ETC
ALSO _ IF YOU STILL HAVE LARGE APPLIANCE BOXES, PLEASE BRING THEM, TOO. SOMEONE GOING BACK TO THE CITY CAN BRING THEM TO OUR BEE KEEPERS.
If you would like to help, please RSVP to the facebook event.
