    Melissa! This galette is beautiful! I will be making these when the peaches come out at Fairview! Thank you for the photo and recipe! Can’t wait! Yum!

    I also wanted to share our Quail Springs tour experience yesterday! We were so impressed with the people, the projects they are undertaking and the deep commitment to healing the land. The drive out was fantastic too. We carpooled and made a new friend in the process!
    I am excited to know that Sustainable Vocations is being offered this summer. We met one of their interns yesterday and he said that his time there has meant so much to him. He feels that he has received a great gift through his experience at Quail Springs. The friendships he has made, the training he received and a transformation has occurred for him. Time on the land, time working and living together and seeing a building take shape all contributed to his transformation. He was working on a building project there with a team and spoke to the group during our tour. I never caught his name but I will remember his face.

    Next time they host an open house/tour, your readers and CSA members should consider taking the time to go out there! Oh! and Martin says to tell you that the food is delicious!
