Week 14 -- Gearing Up

Preparations for A GOOD Night have begun and we look forward to seeing many of you Saturday night! The event is sold out and tickets are no longer available. Only those who have purchased tickets will be admitted.  Our wonderful chefs and the entire GFC team have been working their tails off to prepare, so we want to respect that hard work and planning by sticking with number of tickets sold.  If you were not able to buy tickets this year, unable to come, or a bit unsure if this party was for you, we hope to celebrate with you next year! Some of you participated in Lisa Barker's photo shoot during distribution and shared with us what GOOD food means to you. Those photos will be featured in an exhibit at A GOOD Night. We know all our members, even those that are camera shy, value good local food.  It is a pleasure to be part of your GOOD food choices and community. And we know it's hard to think about the changing of the seasons when we've had such an amazingly beautiful summer. You can still benefit from and support locally grown goodness even during the colder months by joining our Winter CSA. Given my novice preparing for winter squirreling skills, I am very happy there is such a thing as a winter csa. Now, back to summer thoughts.  Hello, Week 14:
