We are always dreamin’, schemin’, and achievin’ ways to grow more food here at Rainshadow. For me, the next step is to identify what barriers exist between our food and our community.
- Do our Farm Stand hours conflict with your schedule?
- Does the produce or our CSA prices not fit into your budget?
- Do you lack transportation to our farm or the Bend Farmers’ market?
- Are there any other barriers to accessing our food that you want to share with us?
As I weed my way into July’s abundance, I’ll be considering how I, a person with more time and wiggle room than our usual delivery truck, might be able to share our farm goods with more of you.
Rainshadow is contemplating possibilities around solving food access issues in our Central Oregon Community: possibly subsidizing CSA boxes, scheduling additional Farm Stand hours, and/or making personal deliveries. There are many other potential solutions to food access pinch points out there. It all depends on what you need and what we can do to make it happen. Let us know your answers to the above questions.
If you are interested in getting our farm goods into your kitchen but have been unable to for any number of reasons, please reply to this email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I would love to continue this conversation! We can communicate via the web, or set up a time to chat on the phone. Furthermore, if you have friends, family, or neighbors not on our mailing list, please feel free to extend this invitation to them. We’re heading into July’s abundance over here and the more, the merrier!
