Excerpts of the day

February 21st, 2006

Over the weekend we held a board meeting to discuss our Mission, Vision, and Core Values. It went well and a lot of thinking went into how to fully express our intentions here at Red Wiggler. In the coming months look for the changes on our website’s mission page.

Lately, I’ve been working to secure some straw for mulching this season. It’s been a little difficult with the prices that I’ve been quoted, but last Friday we got a virtual windfall when another local farmer said she had some used straw that would be perfect for our needs. Now, I just need to get some more stakes for stringing tomato plants.

It seems that Farm Manager duties also include masonry work. I’ve been filling in and laying brick in what was formally the feed trough of our lower dairy barn. On warm days I’m out fiddling with that. I’ll try to insert a picture here. Hope all is well! -Adrienne
