I have been wanting to introduce the 2012 farm team for several weeks now but it has been too busy outside to work on it. Today is a rainy day and the internet is actually working, so here follow a few pictures of this great team: Dora, Kayla, Kyla, Leanne, Mathilde, Sarah, Tyler and Andrew. Hana also comes out and volunteers regularly for a couple of hours while Rhona and Anja helped us kick off the season.
Leanne is tracking her Backyard Farming Extravaganza on her Sustainable Eating blog. Anja blogged about her time on the farm. Check out Organic Occurances.
