To: announce at lists.wpirg.org

Volunteers are needed to help out with the annual UW Farmers Market! The
Market will be held in the ENV courtyard on Thursdays throughout the summer.

If you are interested in helping out, come out to one of the Farmers Market
Volunteer Meetings on Tuesday, June 1 at either 2pm or 5pm on the second
floor of the Student Life Centre in front of the WPIRG office (room 2139).

For more details about the market, read the below email from the UW Farm
Market Coordinator, Heather Kelly, and watch the short video here:



Hello all!

Victoria Day long weekend ? the official ?safe? time to plant our tender
gardens. We?ve already seen some early vegetables that have been harvested
for enjoyment?asparagus, lettuce, spring onions, rhubarb, garlic greens,
herbs, etc.  This is such an exciting time!

Of course, it?s also that time of year that we begin to plan our own UW Farm
Market! So here?s a call to all those interested in local food! In order to
offer a summer market, it is necessary to establish a list of committed
volunteers for the fast approaching season; therefore we are holding our
first UW Farm Market meeting on Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 2pm, on the second
level of the SLC, just outside the WPIRG office. We will hold an additional
meeting Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 5pm (same day, later time.)

These meetings will be the starting place to determine how much interest
there is, how the market will run, who will help with marketing, volunteer
lists, etc. Remember that we need volunteers to keep this market going.

Please let me know if you will be able to attend. If you can't make it, but
would still be interested in volunteering...please contact me! Remember you
can volunteer for any market day or amount of time that you have available.
The proposed market schedule for this summer is June 17, 24, July 8, 15 and
22 - based on Elmira Produce Auction Cooperative dates. And the proposed
location is the ENV Courtyard.

In the interest of maintaining our volunteer list, please let me know if you
wish to continue to receive these emails! Some of you will be available only
in the fall, and this is a good way to keep updated. However, you may not be
interested in receiving these emails... let me know and I will take you off
the list.

The weather promises to be warm this weekend and I hope you plan to enjoy it
to the fullest.

Remember to buy local!
