We had a great meeting in Minot last night! Over 40 people interested in more information about purchasing a CSA share from our friends North Star Farm. North Star Farm is an organic vegetable production place in Carpio - we're hoping to add our herbs to their CSA shares this summer. What a great turn out - what good food, what wonderful people - and what good questions!
One of the questions was, "why is your company name gardendwellers FARM?"
So I thought I'd answer that for all of you folks that may be new to gardendwellers.
First off, a few definitions:
garden - a plot of ground where herbs, fruits, flowers, or vegetables are cultivated
dwell - 1. To live as a resident; reside. 2. To exist in a given place or state: dwell in joy.
farm - an area of land, including various structures, devoted primarily to the practice of producing and managing food
Now, gardendwellers FARM:
Over the years, you can say that we
And our friends
With A Whole Host of Friends
And the whole time, we've been producing fine quality food
I'd say that qualifies us as a plot of ground where herbs are cultivated, that exists in a given place and state of joy, where people, plants and animals reside and the land is managed to produce food.
Besides, the URL for just gardendwellers was taken, we had to add farm to it!
Thanks for being our customers and friends for the last 10 years. We can't wait to get our new location visitor ready so we can invite you all to the new farm to "Come Out and Play".
