To all the Valley’s Organic Farmers and Gardeners,
This winter a very special biodynamic gathering will happen here in our valley. We will be hosting The Fellowship of Preparation Makers’ 1012 Conference here in Hotchkiss, from March 1st – 4th. Please save the dates! We anticipate feeding 100 to 150 people for 3 days with locally grown food. We would like to feature produce from your farm, and will create our menus around what you have available at that time. Which is why I am writing you to you today, on the cusp of the cross quarter between equinox and winter solstice, as we gather in the bounty of the season. We would like to ask each of you what you have left you could put away for our gathering in March? We are willing to buy it from you now, and we are also willing to process anything you may have available that will not keep, to serve in March. We are hoping root crops can be left in the ground, or that you may consider planting early spring greens in your hoop house with this gathering in mind. We can rent freezer space if need be, help can up or dry the rest of those tomatoes, apples, peppers, grapes, whatever!
Let us know what you have! Please call or write to Claire at:
