2023 Seasonal Subscriptions, Fall Workshops and Brick Campaign for Massaro Community Farm

2023 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Despite cooler temps and shorter days, Massaro Community farm crew continues to harvest produce into mid-December. However, we’re pleased to report all the fall CSA subscription, including eggs, are sold!

Sales are now open to secure your vegetable and egg subscription for the coming 2023 season. Keep in mind that committing to a seasonal vegetable or egg subscription at the farm helps us plan for the coming season. When we know how many seasonal subscribers to anticipate we can create a crop plan, order equipment and hire staff accordingly. The farm allows subscribers to self-select the rate that works best for your family, which can be paid incrementally or all at once, thanks to the GrownBy app. We also offer the option of a 10-week or 20-week subscription. Visit the farm’s website at www.MassaroFarm.org for a description of what produce is generally offered and when the 2023 season will begin.

Adult Workshops.  Seasonal youth programming is winding down. However, we do have two adult workshops in November. Registration for both events can be found on www.Eventbrite.com.

Natural Wreath Making/Decorating will take place on Sunday, November 6 at 1:00pm. We’ll use the grape and bittersweet vines found around the farm for a wreath base. Then we’ll walk the farm and gather natural materials to decorate them. Feel free to bring your own materials from home as well if you’d like to put them to use for decorating. Rain or shine. Dress for cool weather. $18/pp or $24/duo (parent & child).

Sip & Sign will take place on Thursday, November 17 beginning at 6:30pm in the barn. You choose the wooden sign of your choice to paint and decorate to keep or give as a gift. Workshop will take place in the barn. Rain or shine. Dress for cool weather. $40-$52 (depending on the project you choose). Wine and snacks will be served!

Building Community: Massaro is pleased to partner with Emmett O’Brien Technical School carpentry department for the construction of a post-and-beam pavilion on the farm. The 24’ x 32’ pavilion will provide valuable shade/sun protection for staff, additional restrooms, and be a gathering space for the many educational programs taking place at the farm. Foundation work was donated by Hanes Group of Seymour.

We are half-way to our fundraising goal for this campaign but need your help to complete the project this fall. If we can complete the pavilion this fall, we can install a gift of an additional solar array on the pavilion roof, expanding our sustainability efforts with even more solar power on the farm. Your purchase of a brick commemorates you or a loved one and becomes the foundation for the pavilion, etching your place in Massaro history. Bricks come in two sizes and can be purchased through the farm’s website or using the following link. https://brickmarkersusa.com/donors/massaro.html. 4” x 8” – $100; 8” x 8” – $250.

In addition to growing vegetables for seasonal subscribers, the farm donates thousands of pounds each year to hunger relief.  The farm serves as a hub of education for all ages and shares its space with the community. The farm’s nature trail is open to the public 365 days a year.
