If you were unable to pick up your order last night because of weather-related issues (Tuesday, Jan. 28), please wait until you hear from me personally, to schedule a pick-up. It will NOT be today. I am waiting to hear from our trucking company for information on the Azure Standard drop, and may have to go meet the truck somewhere, but it is currently unknown if it can happen today, or will have to wait until tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience and understanding! As in farming, Mother Nature always has the upper hand.

ALFN Local Food Club: We Get By, With A Little Help From Our Friends.
True Fact: You guys are AWESOME!
Thanks to an amazing display of generosity from our members and growers, we’re approaching $500 in donations to replace our ailing refrigerator. We are absolutely blown away and endlessly grateful for your support. However, the research is in, and it will likely cost around $2,600 for a replacement with comparable capacity. Please keep the donations coming, and we’ll do our best to make it easy for you. Look for the sponsorship listing on The Market. Add any amount to your order when you pick up, even if you can only round your order up to the next dollar. Every little bit helps! If you aren’t placing an order, you can still send donations via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please mark PayPal transfers as a gift to avoid fees.) With your help, we hope to have a new refrigerator up and running before we’re flooded with delicious spring produce!
In the meantime, you may be thinking “What about my arugula?” Never fear! You can order leafy greens without worry. We may have been caught off-guard in recent weeks, but we are calling in every possible favor to make sure your produce is kept not too hot, not too cold, but just right.

Northeast GA Locally Grown: Locally Grown TREE SALE opportunity
Hey Local Food Lovers,
This is a bit off topic but it seemed like a good way to provide everyone with some inexpensive ways to green your homes and businesses.
As many of you know the SRWA has been planting trees all over the region for the last several months. We completed one of our last big projects yesterday and ended up with a couple of hundred bareroot trees leftover. We’d like to make these available to you guys for a discounted price if any of you would like to purchase trees to plant yourselves.
We’re selling these trees for half what we sold them for last week at our tree sale. The trees are just $1 each as long as you buy a bundle of at least 5 of each tree.
Here’s how you can order. Forward this e-mail to email@example.com
and type in the number of trees of each kind of tree you would like listed below
Please select increments of 5 for $5 each bundle
River Birch – only a few of these
We’ll deliver the trees to you on Wednesday with your Locally Grown order. They’ll be wrapped in a plastic bag with newspaper around the roots to keep them damp until planting.
Again to order Forward this e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If I could get all these orders by Wednesday morning we’ll be able to get them ready in time.
Thanks and hope some of you order some great trees at a great price.
