Week #11 – July 11th [Aweek]

MimoMex greens errupting from a member's backpack

It was a scorcher on Monday but with the a cool breeze kicking off the East River, the refreshing frozen margaritas,  and  the cranking A/C, the Woods was once again an oasis of chill relaxation, terrific tacos, and local goodies during our weekly distribution. It was our first distribution in weeks without Stella. Our little CSA mascot has grown up to be ” too goat-like” to make the trip into Brooklyn anymore. Her love of blueberries drives her mad and she insists on grazing (which involves her standing on top of the shares…) on our buckets of blueberries during the drive down. For those who are gonna miss our little gal, a quick visit to Red Hook is in order!

Volunteers working it!

Big thanks to all our members who came rocked out last night’s distribution. So many helping hands it didnt even feel like work! At the end of the night we gleaned off  carrots to roast for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen meal on Wednesday and took about 4 crates of vegetables & 1 bucket of blueberries over to the Southside Mission Pantry. As always, we really appreciate all the volunteer muscle that makes this volunteer project work!
