Spring is hopping along! The cold temperatures can’t slow a farmer down, nature won’t wait. The farmers here in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park are busy prepping the ground and planting seeds. Here is a taste of what some of them are up to:
The Spicy Lamb Farm

Basket of Life Farm is getting ready for another exciting season. We have been busy starting seeds and planning for the season. With over 150 varieties of seeds purchased there is a lot of planning going on! As the weather has finally started to turn everything will be able to start hitting the ground, which is when it feels like spring.
There are still a limited number of CSA spaces available for our 2013 season! The CSA is filling up fast . As the oldest CSA in our national park & this will be our eleventh CSA season, and we continue to grow and improve. Please visit our website at www.basketoflifefarm.com for CSA details and photos of previous year shares. Members can expect an overflowing 1/2 bushel box each week, last year our shares averaged 10 different items a week weighing (on average) 15 pounds a week. Payment plans are available. Email with any questions email@example.com.

We will be teaching a Gardening class with the Countryside Conservancy April 23rd and in May we will be doing a class at the Spicy Lamb Farm on Using the Seasons Bounty. We will also be hosting an Onion Planting Day, for anyone who is interested in helping us get over 10,000 onions planted in a few hour period. Later in the season we will have preserving classes, kids days, member potlucks, a variety of workdays, and a fall gleaning day (for donations to the food bank.)
Thanks for your support of our farm and local food! We are eager for another great season.
