Field Date- Saturday, Dec. 10th, 2011

highlights from e-mail to membership, Dec. 9th (for November 27th Meeting Minutes, please see previous post):

First of all, a warm welcome to our two newest members, Kathleen Dunster and John Tansley!

Secondly, we have some hay being delivered this weekend to the SPUDS patch, and are hoping a few more members (and a couple of additional wheel barrows) will be on hand at 2:00 pm Saturday, December 10th, to move the bales inside our fenced area and under a tarp! So far, Ron and Sheila, Mike and Fireweed, and possibly Kevin, will be able to make it. Anyone else able to join us at that time for an hour or less?

Our hope is to 'stack' a few tasks, including the distribution of hay left over from last fall (wet now and decomposing nicely) onto specific areas of the field currently being mulched for spring planting. Also, to spread cardboard and help further our advances in weed suppression along the perimeter of the field where grass has a particularly aggressive habit of encroaching!

Please bring any outstanding membership fee for the year with you on Saturday, if you can! Also, feel free to request any additions or corrections to the Minutes attached. Thanks in advance for a quick rsvp about Saturday, and confirmation if you have a wheelbarrow you could bring! Other than that, a pair of gloves and appropriate footwear are probably all you need to think about. Hope to see you soon if you're free!
