FARM WORK VISIT

Friday, JULY 16, 2010 11-3

LOOKS LIKE WE MAY BE HARVESTING GARLIC BUT WE WILL NEED TO WAIT TO SEE FOR SURE.

It has been brutally hot this week and it looks like the heat may be with us for a while.  Members are invited to come to the farm and give a hand.   Bring your own picnic lunch and plenty of water to drink.   You will be working in the soil so wear shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and a hat for the sun. [Don't forget sun screen.]

In case of a postponement due to the weather, noti?cation will be posted on the farm website under Upcoming Events. Directions to the farm can be found the website under “EMAIL & DIRECTIONS”.  If anyone has a question, they should just send an e-mail to info@stoneledgefarmny.org.

Travel Tips for Stoneledge Farm Visit
See the Stoneledge Farm web site, www.stoneledgefarmny.org for directions, but also check out the tips below.  Stoneledge is about 120 miles north of the city.  There is not an easy way to get to the farm using public transportation.

Directions:   Allow 2-2 ½ hours to get there.  NYS Thruway to Exit 21, Catskill. NOTE: Stop at the Malden Rest Stop after Exit 20 (before Catskill Exit 21) to take advantage of more spacious rest rooms. After toll booth at Exit 21, go a short distance and make a right hand turn onto Rt. 23 B, not Rt. 23 A (unmarked at right turn, but sign for County road 23 B is short
distance down road). Follow Rt. 23 B for about 3.5 miles to South Cairo.  The South Cairo Country Store & gas station is on your left.  Make immediate ?rst right onto County Route 67 (not marked until you make the right turn).  Go over a small bridge and take ?rst right onto Garcia Lane (about 1/4 mile) and follow Garcia Lane all the way to the end—keep going on the dirt road to the two gray barns. You’re there!
