ArtFarm Work Party

We will be meeting at the ArtFarm on Thursday Nov. 30th to get the raised beds ready for winter planting. We need shovels, trowels and wheelbarrows, so if convenient please bring some of these tools. We'll start at 8:30 and work until it gets too warm. Please help if you can!

ArtFarm Fundraiser a big success!

The Ken O'Key Memorial Golf Tournament, a fundraising event in memory of Ken and his dedication to the ArtFarm, was held Sunday November 19th at the Springs and Roadrunner Clubhouse. We had a great turnout and a fun time was had by all.

We have a lot going on for the fall. We still have basil, sage, chives, oregano, thyme, peppers, and eggplant producing well. Chef Tom is using all of these at Kesling's Kitchen. We really need some more volunteer help in the following areas. Please let me know if you're willing and able to assist.

Fundraising - We are planning a Ken O'Key Memorial Golf Tournament to be held at the Springs in late November. We'll be holding a planning meeting this Thursday Oct. 5th at 4:30 in Kesling's Kitchen. The effort is being led by Claudia Goldberg, but she will need quite a bit of help to get everything done by late November. We also need some help with general fundraising, so if anyone is experienced in this field please let me know.

Fall planting - We are starting to work on the raised beds in preparation for fall planting. We need help in preparing the beds, researching favorable prices for fertilizer, plants and seeds, then help in planting them.

Website - We need someone with website experience to take over the task of keeping the ArtFarm portion of the BAI website up to date. The software is easy to use, and I would be happy to help train anyone who would be interested in this task.

Business planning - Bri Fordem will be advising us on creating a business plan for the farm. We will probably not be meeting for a couple of months, but would welcome anyone who has a business background to help out.

Although the ArtFarm project is still relatively small, it requires quite a bit of volunteer work, and as it grows the need will grow with it. We really need help from the community to make this project a success. Let us hear from you or join us at one of our meetings.
